My practise is concerned with deep looking and the dynamic between the viewer and the artwork as a site of paradigmatic shift. Rather than focussing on the medium as a means to create a commentary, the medium is inherently a part of the engagement and interrogation.
All modes of re-presentation are steeped in political and social meaning. Engaging in a critical appraisal of this meaning opens the door to radical conversations around the structures that frame our society, our views and our ways of seeing.
As an artist, rather than a jeweler, I have pushed the bounds of metals beyond what tradition dictates is possible. The result is utterly unique in style and each piece is one of a kind. Stunning patinas on deep steel and flashes of fused 22 karat gold which is almost indestructible.
