Ceremony continues from an incremental series, Remains, which began in 2014. These pieces exhibit the development of an experimental making process and ultimately encourage individualized, metaphorical interpretation.

In a broad sense, Ceremony explores traditions of preservation, commemoration and honorary material use while also investigating concepts of resilience, permanence and memorialisation. The refinement of these ideas alongside the material-based experiments of series’ such as Ceremonyinform larger scale, literal projects, which are the primary focus of my art practice.
