My work derives from a kinaestheic relationship between natural forms and those of the human body. My perception of shape, mass and
process in the world around me is arrived at not only through my eyes, but through the sensation of myself in space. I use metal and stone to realise these relationships. These materials have an intrinsic weight and presence through which I explore both their mass and internal space, but also the shapes that derive from the perceived processes of growth or movement which appear to have formed them. The works have formal elements of singularity and division which I seek to express in the dynamic balance between pressure of weight of the whole and the release of pressure between parts.
