My practice revolves around the publication of the private and the self-exposure inherent within this. The work explores the ways in which things that are private and hidden from view can be publicised and yet remain enigmatic. An excessive use of process is undertaken to distance the work from its origins subjectively, creating ambiguity rather than intentional literality. My work is as much driven by its development and materiality as it is by its origins and subject matter. Traces of process and the essential mechanics of objects remain evident, yet become recontextualised by their evolving state—indicating the transitional passage of private to public. Reflection is heavily utilised to represent the paradox inherent in the work.
