Art Description

Installation: Glass, Environmental, Found Objects on Glass.

I chose to use the glass tank as I wanted to safely incorporate the water element of the piece.

I was hugely inspired by the works of Damien Hirst when I was a child, there was this fascination of being able to press my face up against the glass of 'Mother and Child Divided', seeing the intricate details of the unknown.

With this piece you are made to stop and look at what would have otherwise been history, a moment of the past, unwanted and unseen. There are huge archeological threads in my work, which is a methodology I am exploring further.
