Tell us about your journey to becoming a sculptor…
I was a quiet kid, happiest in a carpet full of LEGO; despite getting older and finding new tools, not much has changed. My greatest achievement at art school was to gain confidence and conviction – making artwork is exactly what I want to do.
What are the main themes within your work?
Biology, evolution, and the law of physics.
Why did you want to explore the fusion of dormancy and new growth in this piece?
I wanted to make a work that merged perennial plant life in its dormant state with our experience in lockdown – the life out of sight. The sculptures are symbolic of humans resurfacing from lockdown – vastly malformed from what we have endured, but weird, wonderful, and capable of new, amazing things.
