The aim of my work is to strike an emotive response in a viewer, to evoke empathy and embroil them within an unravelling tale. This approach has roots in participatory practice and seeks to draw an onlooker in, encouraging them to complete the story for themselves.

The objects represent the cast of a potential narrative, some are angular and disjointed to create an air of subtle discomfort to antagonise those more organic and soft in shape. Whilst creating a formalist arrangement encouraging the eye to flow between form, colour and scale these objects assert an actively more sinister feel. It is these subtle interactions between pieces that convey the story.

The sculpture sets a scene, awakening tales through dislocated and abstract objects; more a playground for the imaginary than a story dictated by paper and pen.
