In the journey of exploring entropy the process and aftermath of destructive actions became a strong influence to my work, especially man-made destruction (e.g. War). I saw the devastating effects caused by these forces, however, it was apparent that imagery of these actions were integrated into modern society as an everyday commodity. Through my work I want to create an empathetic connection with spectator and the innocent victims across the world, due to human destruction, from wars to accidental house fires. The use of an armchair is to make the piece familiar to most, therefore being more widely effective.
A piece exploring the idea of domestic house fires. Made using a wooden frame and a bed sheet wrapped around, i wanted the structure to be simplistic and the main focus on the process. During feedback it came up that the piece reflected a child cot which gave it a sinister motive, and i was happy with this connotation as it effected the spectator on a personal level.
Another area of study, within my practice, is entropy in Art. I am interested in the irreversible processes and am currently exploring the concept of burning, melting and scorching. I am curious in the relationship between random/control. The chance behind the process gives the work a new dimension of reality and a departure of the artist themselves.
