I work in a variety of media and forms, my practice is not limited to one style or method, allowing the freedom to draw from a variety of influences and to respond to changing situations. Practice involves varied collaborations, investigates the politics of art production in the public and private realms, post-participatory and meta participatory methods..Between 2002-16, I worked in collaboration as “Yoke and Zoom” an artist-led duo/family, whose work combined universal concerns with domestic private moments and relationships, receiving various awards to develop projects both in and out of the gallery environment. Yoke and Zoom’s practice instigated collaborations and intervened into multiple public spaces both in the urban and rural context, encouraging communication between people and questioning the politics of art production in the public and private realms. Often context specific, my artworks distribute and re-appropriate everyday objects, and include problem solving and sharing/ Recently incorporating more painting and drawing. Between 2016-18 produced a series of performatively activated sculptures exploring actions generated through Post Collaborative Practice, Mediation and Conflict Resolution, available for perfuming on negotiation with the artist. 2019-22: Currently producing an ongoing series of A4 drawings harvested from stock images and painting alongside other work.
I am also co-founder/director/curator of MOVEMENT an artist led project space on the platform of Worcester Foregate Street Railway Station, (opened October 2010.) MOVEMENT has shown over 25 exhibitions by local, national and international artists and communicates directly between art and the public on a daily basis. www.movementtimetable.co.uk please take a look!
