“My praxis is centred upon the notion of ‘lumphood’,” explains Poppy Jones-Little. “I strip away appearances, exposing the lumpen substances within.”
Utilising found ‘waste’ materials, her approach is in part informed by a desire to make art that doesn’t impact on the environment. In exploring notions of form and function, her work finds intrigue and purpose in absence.
She adds: “A lump exists at the cusp, it occupies a space within the outer limits of our recognition; it creeps in without intention to denote a non-thing.”
