Dynamics and perceptions of materials alter when used in an unfamiliar context, or as a visual metaphor for an underlying thought or theme. The qualities that certain materials possess capture attention on both an aesthetic and sensory level. This is reflected in the pieces that I create, which are typically small scale wire structures that incorporate materials such as: silver,copper,plastics,silicone, rubber bands, flocking and gemstones.
Other works take their cue from the human body and mimic bodily parts such as the skin-These objects are ambiguous by nature and their intention is to invite question and comment from the viewer.
