My works are all highly physical, not necessarily large, but the physicality or materiality of the work is always very important. The works in the show are made from paper dipped in colour, and the process of pulling the paper through the colour draws and marks the paper. I work with textiles too, and I’m dyeing my own yarn using plant dyes, which means that I’m spending a substantial amount of time outside. I take walks to collect certain flowers and plants and I grow indigo and madder in my garden. The creative process is both the physical making of the work, but also a lot of activity around the work, like picking flowers, or gardening. I’m interested in how to negotiate all these different processes that might seem ordinary or irrelevant, but that all make up an artistic practice.
