"This series of textile work had its' inception in a drawn out, deep studio
I would uncover partially used art materials relating to the jackets and
other works. Uncertain of what to do with this 'detritus' I hit upon the
idea of constructing small art peices - core samples - which would function
as clues to the previous work/time periods. They also reference the
traditional form of the 'sampler'. None of these peices were planned. The
compositions grew organically through the accumulation/application of
aesthetically related and/or randomly selected items from the limited
materials available. The final works in this series display the chaotic
regularity of the supplies left at the end of this creation/evolution.
Inspired by the enthusiastic respose to these works I have continued the
series. The materials may be new but the intuitive, self-generating process
of creation remains the same.
