Joy
2019
Varying dimensions
Sculpture, water colour collage and wooden wall sculptures.

The immersive installation aims to inspire a moment of this intangible, ephemeral feeling to exhilarate and uplift the viewer. Reactions to my work such as ‘this makes me feel happy’ and ‘they are very joyous’ led me to question why certain objects rouse these feelings instinctively, and how we can cultivate positive emotion through art.

The installation brings together vibrant colour, comfortingly familiar forms and playful compositions; all elements working together to create a universally joyful space.

Each sculpture is first made out of plaster then hand painted and placed upon individual “plinths”. For the collages, I firstly paint, decorate and cut out lots of paper forms of varying shapes and sizes before constructing, and then I begin playfully stacking, sticking and joining to make my compositions.
