Artist Statement

Through photography I am constantly inspired by the people that surround me; the events that influence your conversation, thoughts and actions. For me, keeping a documentation of life and its ventures, not only becomes a gateway for stories and memories, but holds a physical resemblance of time.

I am currently focusing on a series of documentative projects that through imagery i am able to bring to light and offer a window of perspective.  I really enjoy immersing myself into situations and attempting to capture the essence of a moment or event.

My physical material practise results in work that hovers beneath the threshold of visibility. Guiding you into a meditative other-world, through the physical use of materials. Responding to the reactions of paint or graphite, I aim to achieve an organic sense of embodiment created through the conversation with the medium and myself.

Beneath the blanket of muted tone, the paintings were once an energetic abstraction of colour, through this I look to highlight the core energy of the paint and use it as a malleable tool for movement and change. The use of impulsive, heavy marks, alongside those that are more illusive and delicate, leaves you feeling in contradiction to where your emotions lie. The paintings become a space to let go and to embrace your own perspective and interpretation.
