My work is an artist’s survival guide told via themes of Love, Liberation and Desire – or please Lord, let me just make it through, let me Live!

 

This is explored via interpersonal relationships with creativity and creatives’ – which form an abstracted re-ordering of self, that in reality never fully reaches a conclusion

 

Although there is a focus on the personal, autobiography appears as a projected fantasy – a symbol of a utopian self, which embodies desires for love, safety and belongingness, alongside the present-day obsession with self-Actualisation, Self-Gratification and Self-Immolation.

 

I began taking photos after leaving a women’s refuge as a teenager, and was placed within a type of care home – I used the camera as portal to filter my reality, establishing an interpersonal relationship between Life and Art – although this was from an old art statement and I kinda hate it now

 

The work establishes creative methodologies as therapy and erasure – removing and transforming fractions of longed and lived-experience  – so to create new cohesive self-narratives with new and alternative narrative tones.

 

My brother once said to me -Don’t try to rationalise the irrational – this is maybe the wisest thing ever said  

 

The work is a space to play, disrupt and undo… Process over Resolution, raising questions rather than answers…

 

PS… I used to be selectively mute! (Lol)
