Alpha 60 Award.

Wolf Wennrich Award for Craftmanship – Mr Michael Wennrich Endowment.


Diagrams are abstractions, taming messy reality through their orderly summaries of information and relationships. In my practice I explore the formal language of diagrams and how their abstracting function operates. I search for ways to open diagrams up, moving them away from structure and control towards more speculative, bodily and intuitive ways of knowing.

My deeper interest is in playing with our pattern-seeking minds, our urges to find similarities and meaning, and the appeal of rationalist knowledge systems as one way to manage the complexities of being in the world.

My work ranges across contemporary jewellery and sculpture. I’m excited by the stuff of the world, its forms and tactility, and experimenting with these.
