Water is arguably one of the most powerful forces on the planet. Whether in its liquid state, frozen as ice or in gaseous form it is constantly modifying landscapes all over the world. I want to capture the depth and beauty of the Earths surface and its water systems, whilst highlighting the changes they are undergoing as a result of dramatic climate change.
To recreate the feel of these incredible environments I mix and pour coloured resin in an unconventional way; using the heat from a butane blow torch to facilitate the resin flow. This process allows me to create unique abstract worlds with immersive detail, depth and flow. I am also interested in using water in its frozen state as a readymade object in unusual or unexpected contexts and enjoys working in various mediums including sculpture, painting, film and installation.
Having grown up living in Cornwall, the sea has always been important to me and has hugely influenced my practice, I think perhaps thats why I am so interested in water and also why I choose to work with resin. In my work I aim to capture those moments of fluidity and movement I see when watching the waves.
TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE SUMMERHOUSE GALLERY
Here at The Summerhouse we love to support both established and new, up and coming artists with an affinity to Cornwall. We do recieve a very large volume of submissions, and although we take care to view every artists work, it is very difficult to discuss work with every single artist who gets in touch.
Please send us a selection of work which you feel best represents you, along with an artists statement and a list of other galleries which represent your work if applicable. You can email this to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to our address, with contact details (email or telephone) which we can reach you via should your application be successful.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Tuesday - Friday: 10.30-5.30
