MA work

My passion for language and for communication through imagery results from personal difficulties within society because of my dyslexia and expressive dyspraxia.

My work shows the historic grandeur of an unfamiliar civilisation - the location, language and temporal context of which is unclear.

I aim to confuse the viewer in a manner similar to how I feel and cope in everyday situations. To me, objects have a tactility and are aesthetically interesting but difficult to comprehend. My work operates in a similar way; it is highly detailed and familiar in its symbolism and yet it is also obscure.
