Works ( The Playing Field 2015 -)

‘The Playing field’ is a body of work that evolved from my residency at Aberystwyth Art Centre in 2010.  The Playing field is a stage where many activities take place from leisure to pleasure to sports to country fayres to fairs and school sports days.  The Playing field is an accumulation of drawings, paintings and photographs of interventions, appropriations and amusement.  As an adult I revisit sites of play and make my own mark, children make their own mark and on occasions authorities intervene.  In the main my work is essentially about psychodynamics of space and how we function taking an objective look at place – the difference with the Playing field, to that of the beach and the city – is that an internal space is operating coinciding with the physical space that opens up another dialogue.
