Artist Statement

I have embraced methods and themes of experimentation and study. I look for connections that can be made between the natural world and the unseen reality that underpins it. In my work, I explore emotions and perceptions of the society that shapes our visual culture. Having engaged subjects as diverse as media manipulation, social frustration and conceptual perception of reality. My work reproduces captured images, objects and visual signs, arranging them into new conceptually layered pieces.

Often times these themes are combined into installations that feature symbolic objects combined with visual image, video, sound or text that suspend and amplify our relationships to each other, and our environments. Light also had played an important role in my artistic approach, it establishes a dreamy effect suggests notions of calmness and safety and in the same time i used it as violent object that provokes totally different meaning.

The constant dialogue between contradicting significance formally unifies the disparate objects and materials in each installation.

I usually work on several bodies of work concurrently. I also create site specific temporary installations for indoor sites. I often rework a site specific installation into a self contained format that will enable the piece to be shown in a non site specific installation format/ environment.

While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring formal concerns and through the subject matter. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work.

Each project often consists of multiple works, often in a range of different media, grouped around specific themes and meanings. During research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work.
