About

Starting with a desire to quietly dislocate the habituated gaze, my work seeks out instability, looking for marks of alteration, signatures of impermanence and sites of change. Often using repetition and juxtaposition, the fragility of the scrutinized subject is developed with an eye to both its history and the of the materials of the project. With a purposeful  awareness to the conceptual and metaphorical conversations the works may engage with, I want to ask questions about disintegration and reformation and to undermine the desire for closure and make strange what seems familiar.

I use  different media within each project and this allows the works to juxtapose the inevitability of change with the concomitant desire to contain, whilst utilising mechanisms of sublimity to allow the works to be accessible. The works seek to gently unsettle the familiar and to allow my making to look back at history whilst conscious of the moment and simultaneouslylooking forward to what will become. I want to explore instances when the past and the future are both within sight and contemplation ; to look both ways at the same time.

The historicism brings with it a political edge as my practice is informed by my constellation of recurring interests that include cartography, ownership, transgression climate and walking.
