I use a wide range of materials to create my work.I have a studio which is a kind of laboratory where I experiment with ideas. I like to create an immersive environment in which I can use my imagination freely. At any given time works might include drawings,paintings ,short films and small figurines made of wax or cast in metal.
As I create the work ,fragments of the real and imagined become juxtaposed in a collage-like form resulting in dreamlike compositions ,part familiar ,part strange.Within the work I consider the role of photography and technology and their effect on the perceptual and cognitive experience of the world. Both 2D and 3D work is combined , bringing together disparate objects in order to create an atmsphere of diclocation and/or estrangement.Often reffering to travel or domesticity - the relationship between interior and exterior worlds is at the heart of my practice raising questions as to how the world is simultaneously perceived and imagined.
Created usually within a series or an installation- the relationship between the works is very important.Sometimes paintings become objects - set in a window or painted onto unusual surfaces. Other times , small vignettes are created using figurines or models positioned with appropriated materials or ready-mades.
To date my practice has included exhibitions and curating group shows.In 2013 I was shortlisted for the Art Republic Award ( Final 5 ) ,The Threadneedle Prize ,London and very recently for Phoenix ,Brighton , 20 Painters exhibition .
