The work in this exhibition is the latest series in an ongoing exploration of the aesthetic possibilities within the context
of abstraction. The transformation of shape and colour allows for the visualisation of a personal experience of reality.
When moving through the world, we perceive objects to overlap and sit next to each other, changing as we pass by,
continually forming new relationships.

I am inspired by the juxtaposition of natural and man made structures found in my surroundings. Just as we impose
manufactured elements on our natural environment, we attempt to personalise our domestic environments by
introducing natural elements. I am also interested in exploring the way in which endless unique outcomes can be
created within strict parameters.

My work uses a restricted colour palette and a common starting point of simple, organic shapes. By prioritising
intuition over structured planning, the works are allowed to develop organically, each work responding to its
predecessor. Once the organic shapes in my works have developed, I introduce geometric components to balance
the image.
