For the past few years, I have primarily made work using newspaper, end on, a little like looking at pages in a closed book. This use of newspaper started as an ‘in your face’ reaction to certain political situations. However, over time certain properties of newspaper as a material became more of a focus for me, cycling back to the stories contained in the work and the stories the works uncover. The paper conjures wood, concrete, paper, rock strata and land. It is used under compression and, like land, this forms its own rhythm and flow, suggestive of movement although static in its present form. Each work has its own story.
