My practice does not lie within any one discipline but instead embraces a variety of media including video, animation, performance and sculpture in an attempt to be versatile and perceptive. The works attempt to engage, provoke and agitate the viewer’s conscience through visual interpretations of the politics of globalization, society and public spaces offering the audience an opportunity to reflect and at times wonder at the accepted norms built around us in an effort to understand the complex relationships within one’s own surroundings. Many of these works/projects are developed in situ often relating to local issues that also reflect on wider global incongruities. The process of engaging with and responding to new environments is a vital part of my practice. While there is an over-riding ethos and aesthetic behind my practice, it is the challenge of seeking out and engaging with new people and new environments that infuses energy into my practice and allows for distinctive projects/works to be developed.
