Material poetics. 

August 9, 2017

Currently I am continuing to explore materials and form through a series of material drawings using simple shapes, often repeated, each having a different character through the various materials used. It feels like the building of a language, especially when they are laid out in groups with their different rhythms and cadence, each with its character and inflection altering the meaning of the one next to it. These series sit as poems, abstractly suggesting elements of landscape, of moments in the woods, by the shore or passing through the side streets of a city. The work comes from my continued interest in materials and as a reflection of my passion for the natural world, repeatedly renewed through numerous walks through forests and along shorelines. The pieces are little explorations of things found, of objects fabricated to reflect some elements of these continued experiences. 

There is much more to come, this is an ongoing process of play and I will be presenting a snapshot of it in an exhibition at Pollen Studios in Belfast for 2 days only. It will open on the 7th of September for Late Night Art and on Saturday the 9th of September in the afternoon. 

Hope you can make it.
