The proposition that we are defined by our abilities is brought into question in relation to my practice, highlighting the possibility that it is not our abilities but our choices that define us as creators.
My work explores the restrictions that occur in both 2D and 3D states, and how these can be extended, rationalized and developed when the two dimensions begin to converse with one another, in a fluent and natural manner. The focus of my work is currently central to a universal, symbolic representation of a mountain. It offers a subject that can be manipulated through 2D and 3D manners, in order to produce various outcomes that were all founded from the same source. These discoveries, variations and changes are all important processes that need to be explored and developed so that decisions and outcomes can be produced. It is these processes that I focus on heavily, the relationship of pen on paper and its journey to hands sculpting clay, is often overlooked and rarely seen in a finished piece. However those first sketches, those first lines on a blank sheet were the source; the source that lead the spring into the river, the river into the sea, choosing its path and course re gardless of abilities or a final destination.
