30: Back From Whence It Came

Woven from Devon willow, this exploratory form is trying to find its way to the light, to grow, to become. But sometimes the path forwards is not clear, progress is not obvious, another way awaits discovery.

My creative practice focuses on emergence, regeneration and natural progression, drawing on influences from the natural world. There is no such thing as ‘status quo’.  We live in a dynamic system and new forms are always evolving.  Even in the middle of destruction we can find seeds of renewal, signals of potential growth, hope for a new future.  So, my sculpture experiments with forms falling and rising again.  It’s all part of the circle of life.
