I decided to start this to keep track of my work and what I'm doing work-wise, what I'm thinking about doing, what I might like to do and what I would not under any circumstances want to be doing.
I work primarily in clay. I'd like to say it's all about the clay, but it really isn't, so better start out honest from the very beginning. I also work a lot with and in Adobe PhotoShop to create images that I then use different ways of application to apply to what I've made in clay. Sounds a bit complicated, but that's pretty much what it is.
Clay for me is both material and canvas, it's a way of getting to where I want to go, a beginning, part of and sometimes end of the journey to Making a Statement. It all depends on where I'm going (or think I might be going!).
Something I feel very strongly about in my work is relationships and connections. I see my work as a revolving circular motion; the different components are all connected, whether through the materials themselves or the process used, through textures, colours, imagery, you name it. Sometimes the relationship is in the theme of the work itself as well; it fascinates me the way ideas, ideologies, ideals, objectives and dreams are so full of connections and attachments.
This is the beginning of a journey.
And I have absolutely no idea where it's going to go.
Isn't that exciting!
