Biography

My practice explores the relationship between power, politics, history and memory and often considers the role of illusion, authenticity and the manipulation of perception. My work is process based, often taking the form of sculptural assemblages or installations where items are continuously arranged, layered and edited. Teetering on the brink of collapse, the instability of some of my recent pieces could be considered a metaphor for our current and pervasive global anxieties. Government's use of propaganda to control fear and paranoia has taken the place of the Church's control over illiterate masses using images, symbols and signs. In a similar way by bringing past, present, found and made together I aim to play with subconscious and material associations, considering how we negotiate and conjure meanings between image, object, colour, form and material.
