Drawing from Unmade Remade I work in progress, 2013
Thinking of the Wall
I am an artist based in Bristol, UK. Ordinarily I work with the stuff of painting. I make work from canvas and stretchers, unpicking and unchipping before re-deploying the material to make objects.
These materials have a really important relationship with the wall. They are the stuff of painting, it is assumed they will eventually be hung on a wall and viewed. My objects therefore also have a weighty relationship with the wall, they often end up leant against or standing free, but quite close to a wall.
The Manifesto of the Wall captured my attention. I will make a new work about the wall. Part performance, part piece of writing, the work will make me consider the wall's point of view.
I hope to convey the result of these thinkings.
