Using very soft clay and wet slip (a creamy clay coating) the fluidity of the material encourages making to be simplified, refined and “choreographed” – an essence of the expression of gesture. Through these gestural, massage-like impressions I seek to provoke connections. From subject to object and through object, beyond to the other….engaging multiple dimensions for the reading. Recent work has evolved from gestural fluidity towards a narrative based on issues concerning water and the Murray River, the largest river in Australia.
