I am endlessly attracted to the undulations, mobilities and lethargies of cloth. Continual arrangement and re-arrangement of cloth draw my work back to the here-and-now, to the back-and-forth, to-and-fro, rock-and-roll of materiality, yours and mine.

I revel in arrangement as a means to re-combine material and pictorial, literal and formal, visceral and ethereal. Reaching back to the endeavours of Modernism, I employ the strategies of formal abstraction to propose intersections between decoration and Modernism, and make palpable the tension between the body and abstraction.
