Emergence is an investigation of form, shape and line. The work is derived through a slow searching process with each shape constructed with the uncertainty of what its role will be in the final structure. Progressive decision-making is a vital part in the cutting, drawing, folding and placement stages as each step is a reflection of what the artist feels at the time rather than a planned development. The making process becomes as important as the final piece itself because it is journey of discovery between maker and material.
