BIO.

I’m a visual artist whose work encompasses painting, sculpture and installation. My work explores ideas of social agency, power, control and failure. The artworks I create, seek to unearth the relationship between the body and the built space by operating somewhere between an image and a three-dimensional form. They ask to consider bodies within the painting and those of the visiting spectators. Thus, I propose spaces were two- and three-dimensional works interplay, where bodily shapes within the paintings, the spatiality of the walls and the installation, and the presence of the spectator all play a role in activating the artwork.
