All of these works develop research into the material nature of ‘thin’ substrates, such as foil,
sheet plastic and paper, using them to construct sculpture that evokes a sense how our
experience of time oscillates through a range, from the internal and subjective to exterior,
cosmic or geological. Research is primarily studio based, physically manipulating blank two
dimensional materials over extended periods. This is a strategy for ‘stepping back’ from the
assumption that the substrate awaits the application of meaning via marks etc – and to
attempt to draw out the temporal quality of the medium itself, to reassert the autonomy of the
object and position it in time. Research also involves ongoing reflective writing examining the
subjective experience of the works creation in the studio combined with reflection on the
writings of Henri Bergson, specifically ‘Creative Evolution – An Introduction to Metaphysics’,
specifically his concept of ‘duree’, an infinitely unfurling multiplicity of experiences of the world
in which in which ‘novelty is constantly springing forth and evolution is creative.
