ARTIST STATEMENT: -
The subliminal codes of behaviour hidden in objects and design of manmade spaces, is a concurrent theme throughout the work. The use of miniature scale is a metaphor for escapism and voyeurism, central concerns within the western world. Since the miniature space is physically out of bounds, I am interested in the transformative effect on the viewer, from miniature set to psychological trigger of remembered places. Familiar locations and objects merge together to create an unsettling parallel world and a sense of longing. The sculptural interiors are a series of subtle visual spectacles, inviting curiosity and total immersion into uncertain narratives.
