Despite the fact that I have been a member of Young Arnolfini for nearly a year now this is my first blog post! I thought I would kick off with a little sneaky preview of some recent work.
I’m currently in my final year studying BA (hons) Drawing and Applied Arts at UWE here in Bristol. My obsession with achieving perfection in my practice has lead recent work to focus on themes of repetition and the multiple.
Inspired by the work of artists like Yayoi Kusama, Tess Jaray, Bridget Riley and Agnes Martin I have produced a series of hand cut paper nets. The pieces that I have posted here show examples of some of the very early experimental stages of my final project. I hope that throughout my final year at university they will develop in to beautiful visually seductive works that play on the balance between minimalism and excess with a haptic sensibility.
