I have always been fascinated by the arts. I think it has something to do with the thought processes and ideals that different artists have about the world. As a journalist and visual arts student, my fascination encompasses both practical and theoretical elements. I enjoy writing and reading about art as well as making it. My major work focuses on process; manipulating muslin gauze cloth and wool fibres through felt making techniques. The artwork is composed of an off-white colour and features a combination of soft, fluffy and net-like textures. This work is greatly influenced by Richard Serra’s approaches to making a sculpture titled To Lift (1967). As a result, in this work I have compiled a list of my own infinitives in order to test the material potential of the muslin gauze and felted fabrics.
