My last three exhibitions have been collaborations with my friend and colleagues Sokquon Tran. The works were 'dioramas' that tapped into the same narrative instincts that drew me into film making. My new sculptural work is transformed by the experience of the collaboration providing me with a broader means of expression.
In my practice, I have realised that the combination of two and three dimensional elements in the one work heighten the impact of both the painting and sculptural mediums. It appears we notice or respond to the solid nature of an object, more profoundly when it is set in contrast to the illusionary qualities of two dimensional surfaces and vice versa. It is this fascination I am exploring without the support of a collaboration in this new body of work.
