Artist Statement from Exhibit: In 2009/2010 I undertook a three month artist residency at Aberystwyth Arts Centre, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Responding to historical and natural environments I created aseries of artefacts and installation which explored the fishing heritage of the local area. The work incorporates enigmatic natural and synthetic beach finds with fishing equipment using a mixture of small scale metal working skills and technical processes used within fishing disciplines across cultures.
