MA work

My work has always developed around notions such as the common, nothingness and perhaps even boredom. I like to look at familiar things as if it were my first encounter with them in order that other meanings can emerge.

I explore this relationship literally, and particularly in my recent work, I look at how I can engage with the void that is created between me and this familiar object.
