Since moving to Brazil in 2015 I have been loosely basing my work on the many hand made pavings in Brazilian cities., known as 'pedra portuguesa' (portuguese stone) There are always so many interesting facts related to them in their long history which dates back to the portuguese colonisation in the 1500's. The pavings are in decline as they are gradually being replaced by ashphalt. These works are a continuation of a series I started in Brazil. The last of which are made in my London studio. I introduced a material element that I felt bridged this 'gap' between the two continents I live in. During my research I found that flock wallpaper was at the height of fashion around the time of the European collonisation and industrialistion of Brazil. Once a luxury product used by the wealthy in the grandest apartments, it has declined into cliché intended to evoke an atmosphere of Colonial grandeur. My current work questions value; the value, or lack of that we give to things and why.
