Preserving memories of spaces and surfaces that one day may be lost is the essence of my practice. My work documents the surfaces, textures, marks and fragments of overlooked and forgotten relics of the urban landscape. I aim to draw out the details of the mundane and the everyday; to bring to the observer details and aspects they would not have previously acknowledged due to an automated familiarity. My works aims to evoke curiosity from the viewer by urging them slow down from their everyday lives, in order to think about things they otherwise do not engage with or think about their familiar in a new way. Rather than describing spaces, l challenge their perception by presenting them in an unfamiliar way, explored through my three main areas of focus - printmaking, casting and object making.
