Rock Lobster is a contemplation of the aquatic.
“I daydream while I work. About frisky utopias where space lizards chew bubblegum while drowning in glitter. Colour is my cosmic junkyard, I harness the subtle subconscious language it radiates- to express a mischievous futurism. My making process has its own flow of consciousness. I search for a considered shape – a crystal, a nicely-formed piece of coral, the texture of lobster shell. These shapes are cast in silicon mould, then filled with dyed, opaque resins. At the perfect meeting-point of pattern, form and colour I find balance and silence.”
