About

Artist or mark maker. Mark making is our imprint the mark of humanity’s existence and making, A hundred millennia of mark making before ‘Art’ was first uttered, with a temporal momentum that transcends definition. 

I believe that the making of marks’ objects and performance are an intrinsic part of being human, these are the threads that run through my practice. The grievous loss of deep intimate love, my curiosity of humanity and nature, the intellectualness and physicality of making, and the materiality of matériel, are the energies that drive and inspire my work.

Project overview

The Continuum of Mark Making

The design and form of my Degree Show Project, purposefully encourages a variety of interactions. The translucence of the imagery, allowing the viewer to be both observer and observed, to sense the presence of others. To feel the interconnectedness of humanity and to feel a sense of oneness. 

Blurred reflections in the frames magnify the presence of the viewer, enhancing the sense of transience and temporality of our existence, The imagery, and interactions, become points in space/time, captured, and constrained by the architectural framework of the universe and our physical laws. 

The two larger images, allude to the vast continuum of our existence without specificity of time or place. The smallest is a mirror of our current time and context. The deliberate articulation of the structure allows a site-specific reconfiguration of form. The similarity of input or source material, contrasts with the widely differing outcomes of the drawings. This is reminiscent of the phenomena described by chaos theory. 

The footage for this project was shot in Liverpool, Manchester and Preston.
