The work I produce is largely figurative, and through the exploration of the human form I examine the patterns and structures which exist across the body. Emphasis is placed on the ‘fragmented’ texture of the skin, a process which has encouraged my work to evolve from its occupation of plain paper to the potential occupation of other, pre-fragmented or pre-patterned surfaces.
I’ve always loved maps, but it never occurred to me to use the actual map as the base – your artwork is truly stunning, and I’ll have those images in my mind forever.
