  • I am interested in the theatrics of empty spaces and the potential that they might carry for us to imagine other realities. I hope to open up new ways of thinking about the world around us by revealing the mystical and absurd found in the ordinary.

    I explore places that are passed through and overlooked, basements, old community halls, car parks, places that carry residual traces of time and memory. These liminal spaces have a sense of not belonging, always in a between state, they become thresholds between the past, present and future. I am interested in the energy that these places can carry and create, how they resonate. 

    I am constantly exploring ways that elements of fiction can be subtly suggested to create a push and pull between seduction and distancing, the familiar and the strange. There is a relationship to storytelling in my work, hinting at a narrative or an event, however the viewer is given a limited range of details and references to meditate on in order to draw them into the realm of the imaginary.
