About me

My practice revolves around mark-making through the dichotomy of unique and mass production. I explore this by blurring the line between the two through my use of mixed media and digital printing. The particularity of each new iteration attempts to renew the delicate union between repetition and uniqueness. My practice could be visualised as a production line, where at each stage of process the work is disturbed by randomised painterly moments, akin to a Sol LeWitt instruction at each stage. I explore this hinterland through strident artificial colours, gestural expressions of the unconscious mind through movement, colour and digital printing. I view my work much like parents do their children, each work is birthed and told it is unique. We know our children are one of billions that have come before but convince ourselves that this one is special. I am also interested in exploring the fluctuating conditions of ownership in the production and siting of my works, in both private and public settings. I view my work as intrinsically political and social, the visual relationship of the ‘individual’ versus the ‘collective’ is integral to our self-questioning both in life and online.
