Through my sculptural work, I am interested in exploring queer culture and I reference this through the materials that I utilise. Materials such as jesmonite, plaster and steel have become integral to the work as they all have qualities which are significantly relatable to the context of my practice. Ideas of industry, labour and masculinity can all be associated to all of these materials, as well as evoking a slightly sinister sense of touch.
Iconography of a performative nature is used and inspired by physical actions associated to queer and erotic social spaces which reiterates this sense of movement; abstracted sections being strapped up and strapped together; elements slumping and leaning and then being pushed and pulled through walls. It is these elements which change the work from something static to something with movement, weight and dependency.
