This exhibition produced a number of works Migrate, Voyage and 3,400 explore my on-going interest in ideas of mapping, time and the ephemeral nature of life. Paper has a long and complex cultural history. By working with its materiality I create pieces that raise questions of permanence, space and time.
Migrate: This drawing reflects the transient elements of landscape over time. The movement of the ink on paper maps a story, a trace of a journey of struggle and perseverance.
Voyage: This is an ink and tissue paper drawing that examines the relationship between the physical and the metaphysical.
3,400: The title of sculptural piece ‘3,400’ hints at the fragility of life – the white tissue paper boats look so fragile lined up together looking like shrouds, perhaps reminding us of lives lost by refugees trying to flee to safety.
