Artist Statement

I am interested in the overlap between sculpture and performance, in the relationship between physical objects and the performative processes that they can initiate. Increasingly, my practice involves the creation of sculpture which, rather than being a finished outcome, represents a starting point for potentially endless expansion and performative situations. 

Recent exhibitions include Today Is The Deed at Galeri 3B, Wrexham and GANG: In The Park After Dark, Duke Street Car Park Liverpool, curated by Rebecca Key. A current ongoing project is WanderBox, a custom built, portable gallery and residency space.
