I would say my work, if needing to be catagorised, would fall into the camp of the conceptual -
however Conceptual art is generally considered to be art in which the concept or idea involved
takes precedence over aesthetic concerns - “the idea becomes a machine that makes the art”.1
My methodology is the inverse practice of this, using the intuitive rather than the intellectual as the initial driver,
so that in practice the ‘aesthetic’ of the work takes precedence over ideas. Paradoxically in surrendering to this intuition
it seems the intellectual mind is permitted to work at a deeper and more authentic level. The intuitive practice leads
in the conceptualization of the work, however an 'analysis' of that intuition follows - and so on in a circular motion.
So, for me ‘the art becomes the machine that makes the idea’
