::: Introducing ::: 21 Artists: London Featured Artist Sequin Kay

Project Brief:

I experiment with a variety of materials in my work using old and found objects. I have found a resonance in recent years with sequins of various shapes and sizes. Colour and form guide the composition of my work instead of a formal pattern planned ahead.  If there is too much order the pieces do not have a life of their own.  My work is charged with meaning perpetuated in the meticulous detail, which is central to the meditative process involved in the making of the works.  Working this way is inherently inclusive and non-inclusive to the viewer. From that I explore the question of how we perceive the world and therefore our perceived power in acting upon this knowledge.

I produce my work because I believe in bringing visual delights into other peoples lives.  I wish to see more love in the world and for people to become more connected within themselves and to others.  I love the process of making work and also for people to enjoy and visually delve into where they can loose themselves through the process of looking and experiencing; Enlightening people to the beauty that is all around us.

Disruptive and fluid patterns guide my pieces and are associated with the reflection of light.  Sequins are used in textiles and sculptures all around the world as a tool to reflect light and to imitate wealth.  I began using light reflecting materials in my work for a similar purpose to imitate inner wealth instead of outer wealth.  By the wealth of knowing oneself truly is by looking and allowing oneself to enter a meditative state. Reflections teach us something about our inner selves as people and I feel my work touches on the subconscious realm where signification is most powerful.  The forms and patterns are used to allow the viewer to uncover something about themselves, through the process of looking, seeking and searching.
