An oddment is defined as “something left over” and “something odd”, often making reference to fabric or remnants of textile materials. In my new series Oddments, I am integrating studio accretion into 2-d wall works. Bits and bobs, snippets and serger cuttings are valuable to me in term of texture, colour, shape, size and past history. Having a studio practice for 14 years, this accumulation is my method of organizing, waiting for some day to make use of material that holds memory and significance. With my art practice consisting of sculptures, clothing, performance art, installation, public intervention and public art, I often develop large scale sculptures and architectural installations. The practice of creating these works is a meditation on materiality: a focused attention on line, colour, composition and the thread that joins them together.
