My work involves representational concepts around the natural power behind thought, human nature, and how the subconscious is woven into this equation and relationship. My sculptures are tools of representational awareness. Human energy, thoughts, and the subconscious are a powerful focus within the individual, serving also to connect us as a species. The mind often becomes and acts in a segmented way where thought can appear segmented too. Each segment acts as a building block of thought, but when the sculpture is seen as a whole gives a holistic view of the mind and energy. Within my sculptures, colours and forms represents various emotional states of the mind and the subconscious. From the minute to the monumental these sculptures reflect the inner workings of the conscious, subconscious, and the flowing energy that can be considered thought. Information is power so this reasons that thought is energy. I strive to visualise this idea with my own form of symbolism and representation.
