What is my work about?

My work deals with the ways in which we form meaning in art. It plays on the exchange between art and audience, and calls into question the building blocks of the process. Namely, in the way thought, image and language are used in the process.

Artist Statement

In my work I use photography to take a look at the element of exchange between the audience and artist and the ways in which imagination itself can be used as material. I play with the ways we form meaning, and the way this process is continuously evolving. This creates a narrative in and of itself, in which the technology, the media used to inform the work, the language, image and thought, become repurposed elements, taking on new roles.
