ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

I’m excited to have been selected as the new artist in residence at the Naomi Korn Copyright Consultancy. During this six month residency I will be working on ideas around holism, interconnectedness and empowerment. I’ll be uploading developing work on the NKCC website along with thoughts concerning my work and the nature of an organic holistic approach to art and culture. This is part of a series of new sculptures through which I am thinking about basic methods of making and building. Through using simple domestic waste like plastic milk bottles I am thinking about formal concerns like making, materials, colour, scale and texture as well as starting to wonder about their connection to the global environmental crisis we are causing.
