Artists Statement for “ Curiouser…..?” Silk Mill - Frome Sept 2011
For the “Curious Drawers” exhibition (May 2010) I made a sketchbook and chest of drawers after studying insects, looking specifically at butterflies. Last Autumn and this Winter I took moths as my theme and my work has pared down in colour and techniques. I have made drawings in pencil and ink developing the concept of fragility and ephemera. The folded creases of a moths wing suggests concertina shapes and possible sculptural forms. I intend to produce a white drawer and a small white chest inspired by moths.
