Working across a variety of mediums, my practice focuses on place and the objects and people that can be found at the sites I examine. The concept of a place being both public and private particularly fascinates me, as does the transient nature of particular locations. My current work concentrates on allotments, specifically those situated on Woodhouse Moor, Leeds. These features of the British urban landscape usually occupy awkward, otherwise unusable spaces.
Through the process of casting I have attempted to capture a range of objects found at the site. The casts translate otherwise forgotten or banal materials into articles worth looking at, they hold a residue of everyday life.
Allotments change through the seasons and as users leave their mark on the space. Based on photographs taken over a four month period, prints and drawings displayed alongside the casts trace the gradual transformation of the space over time.
