The Collector

This body of work is an exploration of the concepts of collecting, protecting and ownership. Based in the domestic environment it examines our relationship with our possessions. By covering the objects in different ways, tissue bags, fabric or isolating them in a bell jar, they take on an importance and significance of their own, they become fragile, precious and mysterious. The work questions the act of collecting and the value placed on objects either for material or sentimental reasons. The work oscillates between the ideas of the surrealists and the utilitarian functional work of the early photographers. The objects remain fixed motionless in their own time and space embalmed by paper, cloth or glass.
