Held My Hand
Installation capturing the moment of resolution before helping someone to cope with the inevitable.
In my degree show, Held My Hand, my methods of assemblage have remained the same buthe motivations behind this current body of work were very closely tied to the death of my father. It was not until I began to consider the curation of the works that I realised I was making a contemporary monument which captures the last moments of my dad’s life.
Much of my previous work has dealt with ideas that relate to the conversation between painting and sculpture, but since this experience I felt the need to create a body of works using emotion portrayed through objects and paint. This is the most personal work I have created to date.
