Up to date Artist Statement

As a Fine Artist, I focus on exploring the body and human existence. I mostly look at the body anatomically rather than conceptually. I have study life drawing and working with dance schools to explore the body and how it can be distorted in order to express oneself. I have explored the idea of our existence in a range of ways including, the universe and societal issues of body shape and anorexia.

My current work looks at the hands and how they can express emotions. I am interested in the way hands can reciprocate the different states of mental health. I am working on a portfolio of hand drawings of different positions and movements. I am using my own hands because I want to explore my own state through my hands and how I see myself. Along with this, I am almost exploring movement through the continuation of life drawing and attending dance schools to record the dynamics of the body. These studies, both hands and life drawing are being incorporated into collage using other coloured paper and old work found around the studio.

I am fascinated by the way the body moves naturally in day to day life but I want to look at how we can purposely distort it through collage by changing the shape and contours of the figures in the drawings. The purpose of this is to create a piece of art which combines the ideas I have has with my drawings along with how I want to distort and create my work.
