    Artist Statement

    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.
