ARTIST STATEMENT :

At the centre of my art practice I investigate theory concerning the human condition and question art-making which provokes and intermediates between visceral emotion and identity.

My early interest and inspiration was drawn from the German Expressionist painters, from whom I learned the use of colour, motion and emotion in visual narratives. This early education in art history voices the integration of poetic subtext in my work.

I experiment with digital and printed media formats including data corruption and image manipulation methods to structure varied contemporary concepts, to challenge what a digital art form can be and change the understanding of the media and medium. The manipulation and juxtaposition of imagery in video and film has become a major characteristic in my work.
