Early career

My abstract sculptural works explore uncertainty and transience through intuitive interrogation of material, often juxtaposing light, ephemeral materials with solid, heavy ones. Starting with my abstract photographs, work is multi-layered with uncertain depth of focus and comprises sculpture, painting, projection and printmaking as well as photography.
