In my practice I combine traditional processes of printmaking with new possibilities associated with scientific body imaging and data manipulation to create works that question being in the world. I think about how experiences transform us. I also consider how science and technology mediate our existence.
Here I have experimented with new methods of representing the human form, visualising body-shape through pattern and mark and isolating the figure. In this body of work I present the body outline reduced to a flattened sandblasted plane or a web of patterned interlacing. The transparency of the glass challenges ideas of gravity, materiality and object-setting relations.
The thickness of the glass holds light between the sandblasted surfaces and the glitter of the sandblasted planes dissipates the certainty of the forms. The boundary between back and front (inside and outside, or here and there) is made permeable. The visual intersections made possible in the glass also suggest the multi-layered nature of knowledge and experience of place. These images suggest the possibility of parallel as well as intertwined systems, with their own intrinsic meanings in multidimensional connections.
The subjective experience of the work varies according to position, time, lighting and location.
