Craftsman weaves together a cross-disciplinary investigative practice that challenges the ‘thinking-body’ to consider its adaptation to perceived environment.
Taking charcoal as its tool Craftsman highlights our potential to be highly sensitive creatures that retain all that we have felt and experienced not just in our artistry but in our entire lifetime. We are self-aware, three-dimensional archives engaged in a continuous feedback loop with what surrounds us. By drawing attention to the relationship between a maker and their materials, the work experiments with the continuous evolution of an idea’s state of being and the ecology of its making.
This practice is in pursuit of a creative rhythm using time as an infinite resource. By switching between crafts the maker investigates how one may map the physical experience of listening to materials in both two and three dimensions.
Charcoal, clay and cartridge paper.
