Oscillate

Developing from a previous solo exhibition, Shuffle, held at Spectrum Project Space, ECU, Mt Lawley, WA in 2016, the prints and sculptures that form the body of work for Oscillate further interrogate the small moments of the everyday and investigate the intersection of public and private space. Works combine the use of images of the ground underfoot, which is used as a lexicon through which to view the world, with layered text that obscures the image, making further reference to the inability to capture a moment in time, giving hints only.

In regards to the technical processes used, something that is ever-present and important in my practice is the way in which, over the years, the act of recording images has become increasingly instantaneous. Part of my practice aims to interrogate this and slow it down in the production of artworks that use mainly labour intensive methods of making, repetition also being a key component. Methods used include solvent / pigment transfer, hand colouring, chalk transfer, hand writing, iron on heat transfer, hand stitching and   digital print.
