Hi there! I'm an painter, sculptor and illustrator based in Sydney, Australia.
Painting and sculpture deal with the problem of making physical the things of the mind. A study of physics poses the opposite problem. This liminal zone between mind and matter is the focus of my practice, which necessitates an interplay of making and philosophy.
My current work explored contemporary anxieties about the future, especially fear of loss and the misuse of technology. _______ My work as a graduate student explored movement, suspension, travel, doorways, portals and paths, to create a sense of anticipation, risk and possibility. The use of remnants and humble materials suggested an archaeological uncovering and led the viewer in their own exploration. I was influenced by the writing of Gaston Bachelard on the phenomenological significance of spaces. In my attempt to deal with space in terms of its poetic significance I placed gently familiar symbols in otherworldly settings. I explored the visualisation of dimensions through a combination of flat graphic surfaces and delicate sculptural forms, the juxtaposition of miniature and monumental scale.
