My practice looks at tension in regards to the tension between artist and object and also objects and their environment. The artwork itself aims to depict tensions between weight, balance and gravity whilst simultaneously looking carefully and delicately assembled.

The collages correlate to the sculptural piece as despite the collages being easy and effortless to make, which subverts from the process of sculpture assembling. The collages depict combining separate elements to create a whole image, which is what I am attempting to do with my sculpture.
