My work contemplates the human spirit. Inspired by philosophy, anthropology and spirituality; it asks the question; what does it feel like to be human, alone and together? I desire to create a visual language that explores the visible and invisible spaces in the shadows of human experience and relationships. In this view, ambiguity often plays a role in the formation of works. My intention is to use drawing to explore relationships in both the physical and ephemeral realms amidst our modern-day society. The work is influenced by current political problems including societal conflicts, relational disconnection in everyday life and key figures that play a role in affecting these issues. My long-term ambition is to create a dialogue in art that conveys us as a collective public, offering visceral and contextual knowledge on how we can maintain togetherness, amidst separateness in modern times.
My work is developed using a growing archive of photographic and literary sources collected from photography, online archives, books, podcasts, newspapers and magazines.
