MA work

While my work often gives the illusion of scale, depth and solidity, it in no way attempts to hide its drawn two-dimensionality. It is this point of existence between representation and simulation that presently interests me.

I am exploring how nonsense and the absurd can relate to complicated systems of dependence and interdependence, and how this can encourage meaningful interpretation.
