My approach to my work is direct, intuitive and visceral. I create gestural and performative marks as a bodily glimpse of my time in this world. Whilst exploring different materials and mediums, I realise that the space I have worked in throughout lockdown for most of this year (the studio), is itself another medium to play with. The presence of the old posts and beams and the physical space inside my rustic eighty-year-old home studio in Wurundjeri country is embraced and integrated to become the work. The building's influence is evident in this current body of work as it exists as my present-day reality. I am learning and absorbing a new dialogue—a new language. A renewed perception is emerging as a transformative interface, with different possibilities and boundaries. This is enabling me to discover a fresh perspective in my practice with an enlivened responsiveness of 'encountering.' In this fresh framework and context, my studio and the physical space have become another medium to play with.
