Sleight of Hand

These works deal with labour, especially the repetitive nature of how certain actions can appear almost accustomed. It is the activity of methodically making work that meaning eventually gets embodied in an ordinary matter.    

As such, the following works look at the conventions of minimalism, the essences of the hand, and the manipulation of everyday materials and objects.
