Layering and slicing of information fragments the figures, allowing them to morph between the real and the imagined self/other.
Experiences and memories are re-played out in a surreal, altered world. A world caught in a flux of internal and external dialogue. The process of making: painting, drawing, sewing, firing, building and wrapping transforms the internal drives and ideas into an art object. The art object is then re-consumed and internalised by the viewer and artists. This feeds the making of the next piece, where figures may reoccur. In these works there is a process of consuming, digesting, expelling and then re-consuming experiences and memories. Bodies Undone also holds a mirror to the artist external body, which inhabits the skin of the piece. It leaves physical evidence of its activity; imprints upon worn clothes, used cups, body casts, handled clay and paper/canvas.
The bodies’ fears, desires, fantasies, obsessions and scars are unpicked and revisited. This unfastening of body parts provides a gaping hole, an orifice into an internal reality… a place to peer and feel.
