My art is concerned with organic structure and an investigation
into the forces behind the processes of nature. This involves looking
at biological forms and cell images, as well as observing natural
phenomena. My work is a celebration of the natural, imperfect quality
of life and an investigation into the paradox between the delicacy
of life forms and their inherent strength. I am interested in the
link between art and science and believe that artists can help to
re-invest scientific curiosity with a sense of wonder.
My working methods are diverse and include printmaking, photography,
installation and three dimensional work constructed from hand-made
paper. The delicacy of this material helps to convey ideas of fragility
and impermanence and reflects life’s imperfections.
I staged a performance/event at St. Luke’s Church, Liverpool
in October 2003 when 1,000 decorated origami peace cranes were thrown
from the tower for the audience to collect. These cranes were made
by myself and members of the public and carried images of diseases
associated with the recent war in Iraq, namely Smallpox, Anthrax,
Cholera and Typhoid. I am currently engaged in a project which involves
me making as many origami peace cranes as I can in a 24 hour period.
