– My current series of work Home started in 2019, exploring the word ‘home’ and what it means, not only to us as humans but also the many insects, mammals, fish and other creatures with which we share our planet. This became a huge area to explore so I created a statement to use as the basis for my project.
Home gives us a feeling of belonging no matter whom or what we are, whether it is a nest, house, habitat or ocean. It is a place to feel safe, comfortable, connected or part of a community. A home provides space for an individual to shelter, sleep and eat in relative peace. For families, tribes or colonies it has the added opportunity to communicate and share knowledge. Whatever organism we may be, we all have a place where we feel comfortable – we know it as home.
I reflected on the wildlife around me or that I had seen on travels; like the leaf cutter ants in Peru, marching in a long colourful line, taking back food and materials to their nest, or the honeybee busy in its hive, the shore crab resting in its rock pool.
By magnifying the scale of the literal interpretation, I wanted to invite the observer to look closer, reflect on the behaviour and contemplate what may be the essence of home to that organism.
– All pieces within my Home Series are made in coloured cast concrete and pewter, sometimes also incorporating other material when relevant to the piece.
