30: Stone Lane
This piece takes inspiration from the work of the artist Ken Unsworth. It is a part elevated ‘living’ piece that sits in the landscape. The grass beneath the piece will grow up and through the stone path, to make a statement about how nature reclaims and restores itself, if left alone to do so. The piece attempts to reflect the theme, ‘Sense of Place’, both in a literal sense, being emblematic of Stone Lane Gardens, and in a figurative sense, being constructed of stones of Granite. The piece represents a dialogue between the artist and the natural world, site and memory, longing and belonging and human histories.

My practice is research based; sometimes auto-biographical, always inspired by a Kabbalistic mission to demonstrate that the spark of life and of hope can and does shine out from the darkest corners of humanity. I am driven by a keen interest in the nature of relationships; the relationships we have with ourselves (self-identity), with our peers (family and friends), with the meeting point of different cultures, with our environments, with nature and with the manner in which our spirituality influences our relationships.
