The images above show some of my recent experiments with ‘uselessness’.

This is the beginning of a body of works that explore the intimacy of process, by valuing the unforeseen and the unexpected in gestural encounters with objects and the drawings and experiments that surround the process of making.

In these works, the attention is not on what is made, but on the act of making itself. The body, rather than being physically present through wearability, is implied through mark making and repetitious action.

…more to come.

    No wonder Berlin said yes. What beautiful, sublime work. I am inspired.
