I’ve recently been exploring the possibility of examining a new, perhaps deeper direction within my work. Here is a statement that I’ve been exploring.
‘Probing the fragile nature of the material world has been a continuing subject of the artist throughout history. Confronting this concept, sharing the sensitivity to both the transient physical aspects of life with the metaphoric connotations of the material with which I work is the intention of this exhibition.
The ‘de-composition’ alluded to in the exhibition’s title echoes the sometimes vulnerable nature of cardboard. Cardboard is a modest, mundane material, possessing the inclination towards impermanence and disintegration. Rooted in being true to this material and to the others that I work to reclaim from the waste stream of life, my work is intended to reveal the correlation with the transitory nature of our world.’
