My work explores the relationship between the tyranny of ageing and emotional memories.

With influences as diverse as Nietzsche and Frida Kahlo, new tensions are created from both simple and complex textures.

Ever since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of the moment. What starts out as yearning soon becomes debased into a carnival of distress, leaving only a sense of what could have been and the inevitability of a new beginning.

As shimmering replicas become reconfigured through studious and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the limits of our era.
