My artwork explores issues of identity and transience through a sense of play.
I use everyday images and objects, often collected on my travels, to explore emotional associations within our immediate environment and memories - real and invented. I am interested in focusing on the micro and bringing our attention to the small details which are often overlooked and ignored. This micro cosmos, at times humorous and bizarre, highlights the transformation and personification of such images as a means of making sense of our surroundings, our environment and ultimately ourselves.
Working with modules and components allows me to develop relationships between forms and in turn investigate the life of an object outside of its original intent and purpose. The work takes on deep personal symbolism as it personifies imaginary dialogues and relationships, drifting in and out of an augmented reality. Different characters and personalities are captured in a fleeting moment to reveal a network of masked identities, fragmented conversations and hidden emotions.
