My current practice explores the boundaries between sculpture and painting. At what point does a painting start to become a sculpture? This is the fundamental question I’m concerned with and came about by engaging with Rosalind Krauss’ text on Medium Specificity. Either by changing the material support of the painting or by changing the material properties of the paint itself, my work aims to present different ways of looking at paintings/sculptures. I use a combination of silicone, acrylics and other materials, altering the surface I’m working on and experimenting with a variety of textures.

Art is confusing exactly because there is no set way of going about it; it can be anything, anywhere and created by anyone.
