My work is continually searching for ways to access and explore the unconscious mind. 95% of brain activity occurs in this space and my curiosity wonders, ‘What covert information lies here?’.
Through an instinctive process of self-discovery my practice is equally about the desire for excavation and escapism within this unconscious domain. Engaging with the overlap between psychology and neurology as a starting point, I adopt both liberated self-expression in paint and constructed mathematical formulas in installation, sculpture and video work as a response. The multitude of cohesive and combative layers in the work confronts the complexity of this unconscious space. Each piece becomes a documented glimpse of the activity here and a component of a colossal irrefutable investigation. The emphasis is not on the answer but the question itself.
I create an abstract sensory vocabulary that activates and celebrates this under-estimated part of the brain that is often taken for granted, ultimately seeking connectivity with the audience through our collective unconscious.
My most recent body of work examines the role of the unconscious in our vision. Cavorting with its capacity in optical illusions, my work lingers on the peripheral areas that poke at our visual perception.
