My video, painting and sculptural practice weaves a kind of visual alchemy, choreographing a playful set of relations between image, objects and sound. Through an investigation of material processes, my inquiry burrows deep into the folds and forces that determine our experience of the material world and our relation to it. My more recent work is grounded in the activity of painting, developing imagery that aims to capture both an ecological and civic spirit and question ideas of love, survival, nature and the feminine.
