Statement

My work is about dislocation and the idea of limbo. Memory, death and landscape are important in my practice. This plays out in the slowness or stillness of my aesthetic.

I am drawn to sculpture and video because they feel like vehicles for removal. Sculpture is so often the act of memorialising something; crystallising it and placing it both in history and outside of a human timeline through material. It creates an other worldliness which is represented in surface texture; the reflective surface appearing to be more of a mirror on the world than of it. Video is similar; it is often a tantalising glimpse at something which appears to have slipped out of time; that is immortal, a moment or place on infinite loop.

I represent objects or environments that feel transitional. For example, the staircase to my studio, a log I chopped when I moved country or the journeys I take to leave my family.
