It’s not that surprising, considering I studied the arts when computers and the internet were not yet widespread and smartphones did not exist. I'm fascinated by digital work, but I've always had a taste for manual work, and computers don’t give me the jumble I need for creation. The resistance and the constraint of material which hollows or thickens, the risk of failing and having to redo, the relationship of my body to the subject in ‘the effort,’ the touch, the workspace, the physical object of the collage. It’s essential to the way I work.
I remain convinced that my work, once finished, could still be subject to digital manipulation, in order to bring it further. It’s a step I still need to develop, I'm actually looking for the right partner to do it with at the moment... would anyone fancy?
