I seek connections with materials. I think about the reactions and implications of a process onto a material, and I attempt to apply the process in a way that allows the material to respond. I worked intuitively with these pieces and became interested in the way metal sheets would react to the processes I used.
These two pieces are welded steel sheets. I wanted to use welding and plasma cutting as different forms of mark making. The distortion of the metal sheet and the rust and discoloration of the metal surface occurred naturally. Through experimentation, I learnt how to control and predict the outcome of these processes, creating soft, organic forms using industrial methods.
