My artwork explores a diverse range of methodologies engaging with raw emotion and adaptability. I work with a core paradox: Everyone’s perspective is unique but we share experience more commonly that we are able or willing to comprehend.

Across printmaking, installation, painting and material driven practices, I respond to my experience of being and doing in place.  

I listen to the experiences of others and look to make shared curiosity inherent within existing spaces. I want to challenge the notion of overwriting history, of appropriating cultures and of dictating meaning. I build worlds that are at odds with ours, but that make reference to reality in order to freely ask questions. In essence, I create work that a viewer autonomously interprets by being motivated to engage.

Through my formal training at GSA; as a studio intern; apprentice printmaker and assorted freelance work, I have learnt to respond to materials, environments and people to develop an impactful outcome. I process, combine, research and recombine the fundamental elements of a situation to find intersections of feeling and honesty. 

I am drawn to grotesque subversions of Hiernoymous Bosch; the resilience of Nancy Spero; the passion of Wangechi Mutu and the playfulness of Pipilotti Rist. I explore the hybrid and the humourous through the language of multiplicity, of interconnectivity.

My hope is that through sheer curiosity, we might collectively find balance.

 

I am extremely interested in hearing your opinion and would welcome discussion on any response you may have.
