Festival: 2018

Part of the Red Tape project

Studied Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University as a mature student.

Whilst the ephemeral, the invisible and memory are themes that the artist is repeatedly drawn to, the Red tape project is a new body of work. The subject matter is explored using a combination of print techniques, collage and line drawings. There is a fascination with the repetitive elements within the imagery, culminating in the video installation – where the gradually decaying twisting motion could be seen as a hypnotic, trance-inducing metaphor for the harsh realities of a life spent working in the mill.
