Bottoms (2017) Cast concrete, tracksuit trousers, birch plywood plinths.
Installation view and details of a series of cast works examining forms and objects close to, or incumbent on the body. The use of tracksuit trouser’s directly cast in to the object makes direct reference to a container of the body.


The Obstacle / The Stranger (2017) HD single-channel looping video.
In the video, cast and adapted objects are super-imposed on a virtual space comprising of a montage of found footage, including images of microscopic tensile stress testing, NASA rocket launches and human hair. Through the montage ideas are explored in relation to breaking, separation, limbs, skin, surface and scale.

Bulkhead Exchange, Tannery Projects with Sarah Macdonald and Richard Scott

Bulkhead Exchange (2016) Documentation of an exhibition at Tannery Projects. The exhibition presented recent drawings by Sarah Macdonald and sculptures and video by Jamie George, informed by a dialogue during the production process. The exhibition was framed by three poems by poet Richard Scott – responding to the forms and references running throughout the body-of-work. The project looked at how virtual objects can become physical, and how actual objects can become virtual. The body-of-work sought to develop new interconnections between hard and soft forms, reference and language – an exchange taking place at a ‘virtual’ spatial partition, a bulkhead.landscape, the project explores these concerns using a specific found and cast object as a focus.


After Living (2016) Excerpt from HD single-channel video, dur: 7'19''.
The video centres on a set of items inhabiting a place of failed dwelling – found, unearthed and, or excavated. Acting as­­ the genesis for this work are a 1955 film by Charles and Ray Eames, House: 5-years After Living and Michael Haneke’s 1989 film The Seventh Continent. The works’ ephemeral location becomes progressively manifest through the scrutiny and activation of the objects – intercut and superimposed onto found images.

A White Flag (2014-15) Image from large format tinted xerographic print series, 4 of 26, each 80 x 120 cm
A body of work responding to the Cocheme Fellowship awarded in 2013, hosted by AIR Studios, Central St. Martins, UAL. As an artist-in-resident I worked directly with teenagers at an alternative education institution in North London – examining notions of adolescence and objecthood. The resulting work is a series of 26 hand-tinted prints. The images depict an array of sourced and cast objects alongside vector-print motifs and drawings hand-carved into painted plaster. Thanks to Anna Hart and AIR Studio, Mark Couzens and Sparkplug.
