In my practice I am exploring the boundaries and transitions between inside and outside the human body. I am currently making sculptures using porcelain and plaster to make the spiral form to explore the overlap between inner and outer. The work is a process of revealing where visible and invisible meet. By incising, wearing away and scooping out a portion of space previously hidden is seen.The fragility of these boundaries is expressed through my choice of materials; where I am particularly interested in where one form encloses another as an interlocking space. By working on a small scale I produce work that can be displayed in groupings on a larger scale. Through the repetitive process of making these forms I am helped to understand these spaces. Drawing is also an important part of my working processes to record and develop my ideas and processes.

Practising artist and trained secondary school art teacher. My art practice is concerned with exploring the boundaries between the internal and external self; particularly in relation to the unconscious and the artists selection and use of different materials as personal symbols. The invisible processes of our bodies as a complex network of flow production and flow interruptions fascinates me. Alongside the parallels we have with our homes to our internal and external selves. I am currently exploring the inseparability of mental and social spaces and how we inhabit two distinct and separate worlds; one is private, mental "interior", the other physical, public " external". I am particularly interested in the fusion of interior and exterior, where one form encloses another as an interlinking space. View all posts by jennifer Ault artist
