Artist profile
My art practice raises questions of value, context and aesthetics through the use of found souvenirs and discarded materials to create collage/assemblages and installations.

Blurring the boundaries between artist and curator, I remove objects from 'worthless' contexts and elevate them to 'art', challenging the viewer's perception of them.

My constructions' surreal enviroments are as much a story-telling device for the audience as for myself, the ambiguity breeding different narratives for each spectator.

In seeing the objects subjectively, their decayed textures become central to the narrative process: throught their accumulation of dirt and flaws, the objects tell us stories of their pasts.

The work's ambiguous environments and weathered quality echoes the fragile and distorting nature of memory and nostalgia - two themes central to my practice.

Ultimately, these are fictional documents of the past that instil in the viewer the same 'treasure-hunting' notion that is present when I first find the objects.
