Overton has become known for her site-responsive installations and sculptures made with quotidian materials.An ethos of ‘economy’ is an organizing principal in her work; Overton uses principles of simplicity and problem-solving familiar to DIY-ers, farmers and small-time inventors. Her go-to materials are those common in manual trades, as well as those she gathers around exhibition sites and ‘excavates’ from storage. She arranges these materials into phenomenological configurations; bending, pouring, balancing, leaning and ratcheting them into shape.
