Still Life installation at Monk House Design 2016.
Still Life is an amalgam of bits and pieces I have been making over the past year, experimenting with new media like silver, brass and beading. I have also been playing around in my main practice with ceramics using different clays and firing at lower temperatures.
Further, I have been collaborating with Seb Brown a lot this year for a show we did together. One of the things it really showed me was what my own aesthetic is and is far more feminine than I realised. For this show I wanted to embrace that- bring one the glitter, the beads and the pastel hues! I also don’t often exhibit alone, and so for this installation I wanted to put my work together in a way that is pretty similar to how I put objects together in my own home, which means things are always being moved around. The install, or placement of the objects, is only as it is because it looked right on the day and if it were done tomorrow it could have been totally different.
