Untitled (father figure) grapples with both my own associated attitudes towards industrial materials and attempts to assert my own masculinity and experiences. I associate industrial materials with restrictive, abrasive and intrusive forces and this creates symbolic connections to maternal and paternal relationships. By confronting the materials through a tactile and intimate process, I am able to recontextualise my relationships with industrial and urban spaces.
