Fiona has a fascination with the material nature of sculptural works. Turning wax into bronze is something akin to alchemy. Working with formalist theories, she manipulates waxes into a variety of inventive shapes to be assembled applying intuitive contemplation into the constructed final works. Her aim is to combine beauty with a sense of wonder. This also translates into the phenomena of patina as bronzes are transformed from shiny objects to sculptural pieces revealing weight and presence. The theme of patina and change follow though to her works on paper.
Similarly, in Fiona's photographic works, the subject of material change also plays a role. These images are created with light and fabric captured in digital format to resemble three dimensional line drawings. Light and shadow have always been a fascination for Fiona and this is an on going investigation into the changeability of subject through light and will continue to impact her future works.
