    MA Painting, 2017

  • My work is a critical examination of contemporary consumer culture and the social structures that facilitate it. Predominantly I focus on the effect this has had on our understanding of where or what we belong to, looking specifically at our domestic space and the community. I concentrate on the contention between the reality of the individual’s experiences and the warped truths projected by all forms of public discourse. I am interested in the idea that all variants of public discourse are interlinked, be it politics, journalism or advertising; I believe they react and influence one another. My practice investigates to what extent the social dominance of neoliberalism in the west has infiltrated all modes that constitute our desires, identity and humanitarianism.
