I am an artist working predominantly with clay. My work examines the themes of memories, loss and sense of belonging. I am particularly interested in untold stories, our invisible internal negotiations with personal history that make us who we are
In my recent work, I have been looking at the themes of displacement, limitation and adaptation. My approach to making is experimental, I love organised chaos, I surround myself with objects, pieces I make and break. I pick them up, mix them with wet clay, metal, sand and organic components until I reach a body of work that carries an intriguing narrative. By reusing old pieces that I incorporate in the new ones as a constant movement of destruction and creation, the work reflects on identity and transformation. The lines of stress, cracks and distortion of the pieces resulting from pushing the material to its limits as well as the unanticipated results from firings, explore our duality between fragility and resilience.
