Engaged in reconnecting with my past, I am using a language that rescues previously abandoned organic and gestural black mark-making. Nervous pencil lines, thick acrylic paint, dirt and charcoal enable me to offer traces of intimate moments of time and space whilst still refuse representation by escaping visual description and verbal fixation.
With pieces that are aesthetically self-sufficient and true to my logic and visual language, my work presents incompleteness. These are pieces open to multiple interpretations where only each viewer can fill the gap between themselves and my work.
Guided by the exploration of what an image is and could be, I drift and play with the audience within a layered sculptural environment. The works are both literal and metaphorical structures that refer to the history of art whilst discussing current geo-political movements and placements of people. In essence, I am interested in the psychological frameworks that guide one, as internal, institutional and environmental structures; all interrelated and somewhat coercive at times.
