”One of the great achievements of modern art and philosophy has been to allow us to rediscover the world in which we live, yet which we are always prone to forget”.
- Maurice Merleau Ponty
My work as a mixed media artist references place. Travelling, noticing, collecting, remembering, valuing, reconsidering and transforming all drive my work. I like to experiment with materiality and repetition, working with sculpture, photography, film, drawing, painting and writing. Essentially I see myself as a sculptor who works in whatever medium helps me tell my story. My work speaks of my identification with the contemporary flâneur, spending time in, collecting from and re-presenting the world around us.
