Leeds Metropolitan University

I work with textiles, creating intricate works which engulf the viewer with embroidery, line drawing and fabric-based sculpture. I contrast fluidity with rigidity, pattern with chaos, subtlety with noisiness. My work is developed and informed through continuous line drawing, photography, found images and memory; most of my work is based on or around a negative thought or action.

Work of art I would like to make

I intend to create an installation which houses a piece, or number of pieces, which harness the successful aspects of my degree work.
I will mix fluid line with rigid sculpture, and use the floors and walls as a ground for the works - the work will spill out and infect the space with colour and form.
I may experiment with the sleek, sharp, cold, semi-reflective surface of aluminium or steel, in contrast with the soft security of yarn and unravelled clothing.
My work has always had an element of intuition involved in its completion, so the exact placement of the yarn line drawing would not be decided until I entered the space.
I hope to create work which is large - almost overwhelmingly large - and I want the space it is held in to be crowded with sculpture and yarn drawings.
