With a 'found' parachute, two paintings, an expanse of cassette tape innards and a hand-embroidered rug, Dove tail joint presents a collision between seemingly disparate objects, a variety of processes, and pop-cultural references.
Wild works across a range of media and disciplines, often exposing the cyclic and tenuous links among the pop-amalgam that weaves by way of reference through film, television, music and literature.
The concepts of gathering, connecting and 'linking multiple threads of interest, is reflected in the works themselves' through stitching, layering, knotting, repetition, and other physical processes.
