Focusing on individual decisive mark-making, I consider creating a contrasting geological composition and surface area within the form whilst it is representing an immutable structure that compresses a neutral but complex space. The artwork is constructed through a partially controlled process where unintentional and accidental actions of erosion or application contribute to the state of the artwork. This lack of control is used to intentionally irritate and to engage with the human senses to cause the viewer to become uncomfortable and approach aware and with caution.
“An artwork shouldn’t be visually appealing but visually stimulating, it should transport you back to the emotions, experience and need to create something with what medium it demands at the time of the connection. Almost like an open memory that can be experienced time and time again without its meaning becoming diminished” - Laura Scull
