For this exhibition I will be looking to create a single site-specific sculptural piece that will take up a large portion of the room. I hope for this work to be somewhat representative of my practice, as a hybrid that sits somewhere between painting and sculpture. In this case, the work presents itself as a sculpture whilst still remaining firmly rooted within painting tradition.
