My body of work explores the concept of ‘nonsense’ and why we consider undefined objects as ‘nonsense’. My artwork consists of drawings that look like and/or remind one of something with ‘sense’ but cannot be defined as anything in particular. During my art-making process, I was often asked the question, ‘what is it?’ or ‘what is it meant to be?’. In this artwork I am asking the audience, does something need to have a meaning or be a particular way in order for it to be classified as ‘sensible’?
I have chosen to present my drawings in a ‘puzzle’ format to encourage the audience to become involved and appreciate ‘nonsense’ without trying to make sense of it. The ‘puzzle’ format also suggested a never-ending maze of ‘nonsense’ – the more you try to make sense, the more nonsense you receive.
