About the Work
In my work I portray experiences of a contemporary sense of being that is structured within social constructs and estranged nature. The influence of omnipresent constructs upheld by us and the emerging patterns of human behaviour are played out in the form of flora and fauna signifiers immersed within a constructed world. These become allegorical symbols of the contemporary human condition - being a part and apart from Nature. Multi-faceted notions of dis/connectivity to the self and other are in fluxes, constantly transforming our networked-selves. The complex understanding of self remains fragile, fluid and ambiguous as we merge into ever-new forms of existence in complex environments.
My multi-disciplinary practice includes painting, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, installation, photography, video, printing and digital art. The media employed and creative processes undertaken on any particular project are determined by the ideas and contexts behind the work.
