Plaster of Paris, acrylic paint



The title is in reference to a short film from 1971, where people act out the process of protein synthesis via the medium of interpretive dance. In this piece, I carved out a still from the video, casting it in the manner of a frieze, immortalising an intriguing moment where science inspires the art of dance.



I am interested in the expressive qualities of mark-making, particularly in figurative works. I try to be inventive and exploratory in the way that marks are formed, seeking to describe more than a literal, visual interpretation of a scene through carefully considered process and form.
