Our feet touch the ground
Our work is created from meticulous rhythms producing series upon series of sometimes extended, repeated actions, which hint at structural landforms, stability of life, of endless daily and seasonal routines. An immense strength built in simplicity.
In this work we weave a tartan of fishing line and glue. Its transparency is significant; the colours of tartan identifying, representing and isolating a particular clan (family) or allegiance are not present. Our tartan is an open welcome to all. This transparent cloth offers no uniform or cover to hide behind.
The dichotomy of this work sees the blandness and danger of homogeneity in our modern world. The removal of cultural identity, political and geographical boundaries and the development of mass market fashion and consumption make us all look and behave the same. Yet the shadow the work creates and its response to light remain unique, offering hope in this transmigration of tradition.
