Artist Statement

Performance is the catalyst through which I explore my visual practice.

 

My work is the result of first-hand, practical engagement with performance - as both participant and as creative, documentary image-maker. With additional research and personal collections of disparate objects and materials, I seeks to generate personal responses and performative documents inscribed by new contexts of appearance. Digital-photography is my medium.  I create digital-collages by compressing chosen materials (e.g. natural objects – flora and fauna; textiles; images of surfaces such as water, glass, cracks in the wall) into a unified, re-imaging of an original digital-photograph, reflecting the original poetics of initial ideas and performances.

 

My work shifts between the virtual and the live-event, creating images that migrate between live performance and visual practice; I embrace performance, physical workshops, collaborations and photography-shoots, transforming documentary into discreet works of art. Beyond documenting a creative process, I endeavour to generate beautiful works that can be read like chapters of a larger whole.
