Artist Statement

A fascination with the visual and conceptual possibilities stemming from the interdisciplinary fields of art, archaeology, museology and heritage drives my artistic practice.

I challenge the ideas of experience and engagement through curation, including, sometimes, the value of everyday items. Artists by nature have the desire to reimagine a space in a contemporary context. This outlook creates a fresh perspective as creatives are not limited to historical means and do not have to abide by certain, and at times outdated, methodologies.  

With this approach, I intend to question conventional ideas of representation with the hope of making the viewer less passive. I am also interested in the tactile and how it can add to a person’s overall understanding.  

My work spans 3D printing, modelling, scanning, moving image, installation, casting, digital prints and printmaking. I investigate open-access content files by looking at culture, and materiality and using revisualisation techniques. I am also a project coordinator whose work has included community engagement.
