Artist, Arts Administrator

There is an interest to create from the acts of learning, observation and contemplation on the subjects of the perception of nature, the inquisition of existence and the connection between things. My work is often interchangeable and ongoing, I have an interest in the affinities between images, which are often temporary and rely on subjective reactions. The process of making, allows me to channel particular thoughts, ideas and connections through layering and assemblage, enabling me to comprehend the universe and it's objects. Within my work I am interested in photography as an act of preserving light captured from a specific time and place. Whilst having my own reasons for making, I like to remove the idea of nostalgia or memory from the images that I use in order to convey a neutral aspect, which allows them to be subjectively reinterpreted by the viewer. Overall I work with small scale images, this requires a specific action by the viewer to see the images close up, therefore removing the distractions around them and creating an intimate moment between the image and the viewer. read full statement
