The derive...
I'm currently looking into Psychogeography and conducting my own derives- walking and responding to the space around me. I'm drawn to urban spaces, and this was a visual representation of a 3 hour walk I took by drawing a circle randomly on a map and following it. I was inspired by Sander Steins...

The Collective...
This is an interactive sculpture in which I provide my audience with chalk and ask them to draw and write on the sculpture what images they individually see within the abstract forms. The result will turn the black sculpture into a colourful collective of minds, allowing the audience to...

Using automatic drawing as my art therapy method for dealing with mental health, I found an image within my drawing which helped me describe how I felt at the time: Legs running in two different directions bound by a body. I felt like this at the time described how I felt: stuck between the...

Stenographic woman
This is a bolder piece painted before my piece "The Uncanny" which uses the same process of chance and automatic drawing/painting. As the title suggests, I was inspired by the famous painting: "Stenographic figure" by Jackson Pollock. I like producing these paintings to...

The Uncanny
I am responding to the word Cárcel in its English translation meaning jail, which is how my mind feels to me. Most my life has been an up and down battle with anxiety, which I feel from doing automatic painting such as this I can begin to understand and unlock how my mind works and the...

The Natural Marvel
Inspired by Paul Nash's ideas of all objects having their own "Innate life force" I wanted to expose the beauty in our surrounding and the harmony people and the environment share. The idea of potential and life force within objects and environment I have exposed through the pareidolia...

The latent mind
Stimulated by my Spectrograph 1 drawing, I created a linear metal sculpture that encases automatic plastic sculptures inside. I was looking at ideas concerning the rational and the irrational, latent and concrete realms, conscious and unconscious thinking. The original automatic drawing though...

Going back to my "Marvelous" locations I this time decided to capture them through recording any sounds they emitted. From putting my sounds into Adobe Audition, I re-drew the sounds with any Paredolia visuals I could see. The result is an authentic drawing that supposedly reveals my...

Love Nadja (The Lovers)
This creation was stimulated through automatic processes. In using automatic sculpture, I realised from a certain angle I could see two people embracing each other. Quite fond of this imagery, I captured it by placing it in a wooden stand to present it. The alternative title, "Love...

I track and document unconscious thought and latent desires through the process of touch. Using plastercine "trackers" I placed a ball of plastercine in a routinely used pocket everyday for a week, tracking any movement (thumbling for keys, ect) and any automatic sculpture I created to...

The Marvelous 2
Developing from my last piece, I further explore the idea of finding the "Marvelous" through the paredolia I have witnessed in places and objects in the city. This piece's stimulus I found in grounds surrounding an abandoned pub in Norwich, the sculpture possibly revealing my...

The Marvelous
Highlighting the convulsive beauty of the everyday; the routes just around the corner of our everyday paths, abandoned places and waste products... this is where the hidden Marvellous lies. Using the Paredolia I have found across Norwich in spaces, surfaces and waste products/rubbish, I have...
