About the Work

My personal practice usually centres on photography or performance, supported by elements of graphic design, writing and vocalisation. Key themes in my personal practice are (i) the ecology and articulation of material and psychological places and (ii) the creation of congruent, navigable space within the individual/community/environment. The human body—primary locator, receptacle and vehicle of the self—recurs in these investigations.

Since reciprocal manifestation offers coherence, the process of comprehending the space we (can) occupy is an echo of bringing the psyche into being, and vice versa. Photographic projects often begin as record-keeping but prove to be psychosocial activism. Performance art pieces, driven by spontaneity, evolve in real-time through interactions with the audience and environment. By facilitating engagement, forms of both documentation and abstraction can function as portals to the metaphysical.
