'Trace' is a collection of works constructed from materials that would usually be considered tasteless. I have chosen to work with materials that have been shed as a reference to our mortality and sexuality - traces of a life left behind. As with all my work I have a delight in manipulating found materials to subvert what we would usually think of as beautiful. Whether it's a dress made of condoms or a wreath made from artificial flowers and hair - the objects could suggest simple everyday tasks or complex notions of religion and mortality.
