Statement

My work varies from sculpture, painting, monumental installations and video to text. I explore themes connected with memory, play, repetition, desire, contradiction, aesthetics and value. Using materials such as marble, plaster, cement, fabric, wood, removal blanket, stretch-film, paint, video monitors, solar panel and Perspex among others. Currently I want to examine and foster greater dialogue across different mediums.
