‘Often Wounded, Sometimes destroyed’.

I am fascinated in the transience of our surroundings. In objects that show a battered, forgotten life: proudly displaying their impermanence, but going unnoticed. Over time we repair ad mend. A fresh coat of paint, filling a cracked wall. Inevitably these fixes themselves deteriorate, but in this we gain something new, something different from the original. In this collection I focus on this balance of the resilient with fragility. How we protect the damaged or allow it to continue alone in its decline. As much as time deteriorates, there will always remain a sense of what was there before.
