Earthly Delights & The Spaces In Between

These works are imaginings for new modes of being.
Coded futures and a painted past.
Surreal textile objects disrupting controlled environments,
and how we are expected to pass through them.
From one side of a binary way of being to the other.
Good and evil, control and release, colour and grey, fantasy and reality, neurotypical and neurodivergent.
These are the spaces in between; rich soil for growth.
Ever unfolding realities and generative, coded futures.
Digital play and material stitches.
Neurocosmopolitan and earthly delights.
I hope these works serve as portals- to know, to see.
A pathway to transverse from one to the other, a connection to internal worlds.
Worlds that converge and intersect with prickly, repeating external worlds.
From the body to the mind and back again…
From the internal to the external and back again,
and from the material to the digital-
A bodymind, without organs.
A push and pull between channels and dimensions.
Stitching a thread from one to the other.
Earthly Delights & Spaces In Between are an attempt to make visible the unseen.
