Personal StatementPosted: May 3, 2016
My practice currently involves working with the relationship between the human figure and its environment. I work from collaged photographs of myself to create drawings and paintings that suggest an ambiguity of gender and narrative which are further abstracted by the distortion of the surrounding scene into the figure. I attempt this by disrupting and balancing form, the use of discordant colour combinations and expressive gestural marks. Through the universally recognisable use of the human form the audience is invited to reflect on their own corporeality and physical presence in the world.
