In the current political process of tearing off cultural bandaids and blinders and working to make sense of what we’re finding beneath, a strong focus of my work is the defacement of surfaces to expose, analyse, and engage with the material beneath.

This often takes the form of chipping off part of the top layer of glazed ceramic/stoneware to expose the raw, porous interior surface, then stringing the whole and chipped pieces together to create a meaningful visual dialogue between the shielded and the revealed.

Recently I’ve begun painting and drawing on the raw surface areas, exploring the potential of unifying individual tesserae across their defined lines of andamento.
