Biography

With its roots in the visionary nature responses of Turner, Blake and Palmer, and a musical mirrored ballerina box kept since childhood, my work explores a sense of melancholy within the ephemeral nature of light and movement, and has an on-going concern with the relationship between matter and light.

Hovering between reality and unreality, my images reveal a discourse of endlessness which simultaneously longs for the mythical place of memory. The narrative explores the notion of a transient self which articulates time present and time past and attempts to evoke a perception which hangs between the seen and unseen.

Striving for a sense of something tangible within the intangible, I invite the viewer to find a still centre and quiet psychological territory which borders the threshold between nostalgic association and something unknown.

My work then, attempts to give visual form to a liminal state of being, while suggesting a corresponding quest for a primal sense of home.
