An interest in notions of translation, play and narrative are central to my practice. These often relate to a framework of institutional critique and are contextualised by ideas of conceptualism and relational aesthetics. I’m interested in ideas of contemporaneity, modes of living, and love.
The paintings invoke a conflict between object and theoretical framework, possibly highlighting the commodification of both. They relate directly to my experience of art school. The stage is a signifier of performance, and the potential of performance. To access the texts the audience must enter the stage and an awareness of self.
