How would you describe your style?
The styles that i’m interested in are constantly changing, ranging from minimalist to impressionist works dependent on the space and feeling it has. I have found looking at a work in a white cube space will have a totally different look to when it is in a home or living space. However, works by Lee Bul have always seemed to encapsulate the aesthetic I have for my home.
When looking at other artists, what style do you like?
When i’m looking at other people’s work, I tend to get drawn to the technique. Artists such as Rachel Howard, have always fascinated me with the way in which they produce work. I find her pieces stand out in any space whether that be an ancient church or a white cube. I also look for scale, I have always loved larger work, having it be the main feature of the space. This could be in many different forms of Art, but walking into a room and seeing a piece commanding the space is always exciting to me.
Where do you find your inspiration for your work?
For my own practice, I have always been interested in perception and perspective. Manipulating the way in which people see my work and seeing their reactions has always been something I have found most interesting, and then take inspiration from for more work. Like most people I know, my inspiration is found in the organic, every day. Whether that be from the morning fog, or mid call with a friend that sparks an interesting thought. Something I have learnt the hard way is always needing to carry around a notebook or phone to write these down, otherwise they tend to get lost in the flurry of my day. Also, being at University and seeing the ways in which other people find inspiration has always influenced me, collaborating with others has always helped me narrow down sparks of interest.
How do you feel about artwork in the home?
Artwork in the home, for me, depends on the piece. From a curatorial perspective, some Art belongs in a white cube space, whereas some fit best in a home. For me Art is as much about creating an atmosphere as it is Art, whether this atmosphere is best for a Gallery or a home depends on the work. Personally, I think it is a necessity for every home to have some form of Art in it, and so finding work that elevates the room is important to any house.
