"Place is latitudinal and longitudinal within the map of a person's life. It is temporal and spatial, personal and political. A layered location replete with human histories and memories, place has width as well as depth"
- Lucy Lippard

The works in Remnant are a mapping of place. Walking through the landscape and collecting objects and images inspires these works. My connection with place is a deeply personal one that is manifested by transforming simple found objects and re-presenting them with a renewed value and presence.

In Remnant the small pieces of broken shell I collect while walking, are recreated and upscaled into plaster sculptures that are finely finished to highlight the form and play of light and shadow. They invite the viewer to linger and consider these forms as ‘other worldly’ objects drawn from the everyday but not necessarily recognizable as such.

My work invites the viewer into my world where I re-present the world as I see it. I see beauty in the everyday object and aim to express that beauty through a visual philosophy that references place, history and memory.
