...where one man's explorations of the oft over-looked and neglected selvedges of creativity are mended into existence.
Interests: i think of my art as an intimate form of communication, a message to one’s self that one wears in their life – a talisman. a charm. a link to an inner world. an ephemeral garment of cloth woven from dreams. to this end, i like to use components that have personal significance to me, but are open to multiple interpretations – that leave the viewer free to interpret significance and symbolism for themselves. components that have a history. salvaged. reclaimed. upcycled. forgotten. discarded. - gather these various fragments together and mend them into existence. breathing new life into their tenuous souls...
