Refracting light and shimmering, Prick heightens the senses. Connected to the pulling power of the moon, tens of thousands of tiny sharp steel pins defy gravity and float across a magnetised linen field. Tension rises inside the sensuous surface with individual fragments competing for ground among the masses, and alpha steel shafts pushing others aside. The fine hair-like surface tempts touch and close inspection, risking a prick to soft skin or a poke in the eye. Alongside its material seductions, Prick holds the potential for sharp rebukes, unfolding friction and sexual intent.
Flicked Pollock-like, the polished steel hovers on the surreal metallic landscape - multiple untamed gestural brushstrokes on the stretched membrane. The activated media creates a suspended process-painting, sans paint. As sculpture or performance, Prick reveals infinite structures and systems, and unruly masses poised with intent.
