Our lives are in a constant state of flux, change one thing, move elsewhere and still similar patterns emerge.

Transference refers to this re/allocation of energy, intention and feeling from one place, or person, to another. The repeated shapes at either end of this work reflect this idea.

Inspired by Anthony Caro’s Slow Movement (1965), they are visualised as twin portals, gateways to alternate realities. The forms that traverse them are distinct constellations, but still connected in space, forming an endless loop.

Transference is a meditation on the power of choice and how that manifests in the material world.
