The artist is interested in reflecting the human psyche through employing contrasting materials. Here, the juxtaposition of the rigid, transparent cube and the seemingly formless coloured shape, echo the instability of human emotions. In the artist’s words, “the strange otherworldliness of natural phenomena transports me away from the mundane and I become excited when fixed ceramic form seems alive, evoking awareness of life’s impermanence where not all makes sense.”
