From 2010 to 2020 my artwork has been based on collecting and distilling information by interfacing and sensing with place, architecture and culture. This selection of works demonstrates ongoing enquiry into the dualities of inside and outside space progressing the theme of frameworks in my practice. Whereby the symbolic weaving and reweaving of history, architecture, identity, politics surrounding the body, site and image takes place to hopefully discover unseen connections and patterns. These interventions have emerged as paintings, hybrids, sculptures and installations.
