The main body of Mairi's work is concerned with unfolding and emerging. She is interested in the fluidity of self and the interruptions, folds, edges and spaces between, which make up the topography of an individual’s sense of self. She explores these ideas mainly through a process-based practice, following her instincts and feeling where the work is leading.
Another aspect of exploring these ideas of unfolding and emerging is the idea of ‘finding the image’. She is interested in representational drawing as a way of exploring the way the image unfolds and the process of emergence – of the image and of herself during the process.
"This process of taking the subject into oneself, for me at least, is a delicate process involving sensitivity, intuition, and balancing strength and fragility to produce work which feels authentic to me."
