Side Impact

Side Impact (2016)

Artist Statement

My works are concerned with tension and rhythm resulting from interactions between fluid, organic nets and regulating, static grids. Forces pull in different directions with tension and release reflecting various states of being.

The intertwinement of net and grid alludes to complex relationships and our entanglement with the real and digital worlds’ controlling systems. Areas of calm co-existence suggest the possibility of resolving dualistic tensions. Other regions show rupture and fragmentation, amplified by sudden spatial and chromatic switches.

Manipulation of c
olour and spatial, structural or geometrical contrasts also underpin shifting dynamic interactions of the grid and the net, raising questions about our perception, reality and illusion.

Traces of human agency counter hard-edged, impersonal geometry, asserting the hand-painted, human quality.
