A certain relationship between architecture, gesture and material is amplified in my works on wood. The plywood itself is a reference to the boarded off area of a construction site and is a material I use for its colour, grain, texture and likeness to skin.
The surfaces of these works are construction sites where we see an emergent identity able to arise. Plywood is a motif borrowed from a construction site and provides the necessary ground and frame for the work to happen within. It is the unremarkable, overlooked support and outer limit of a space, which enables a process of inimitable inscription of identity.
