My work investigates – Why we make the work we make? And – How can it be used to change our narrative tone?
It leads with the premise that creative work is always a form of self-portraiture, arrived at through either conscious or unconscious means. Using the camera as filter, to investigate the oppositions and interrelationships of ‘Life and Art’ – so to explore the benefits of creativity on our collective self. It draws upon multiple forms of language from social, medical and environmental sciences – so to interrogate structures of cognitive dissonance and positive disposition.
My practice distinguishes itself through frameworks of everyday observations and retellings of lived experience, sitting the banal alongside the affecting. This creates implicit and explicit illustrations of events, processes and interpretations.
