Artist Statement

My work investigates the extended field of human relationships through close attention to gesture, language, constructed spaces, objects, memory and coincidence.

I carry out multi-facetted, ramified investigation into the building of relationships (whether romantic, linguistic or mechanical…) and in the where and how of their coming into being; unspectacular events that I aim to make visible in objects and drawings. On the lookout for situations and words that function as reservoirs of meaning, I am particularly interested in everyday behaviour and environments ; the way in which, at any given time, an individual or a society fashions and establishes a relationship with the world. For this reason, the city is often the scene of such investigations, but such can also be the enclosed space of an apartment, a cable-car or a garden: places to pass through or to settle in, multiple sceneries for stories to unfold.

The strong narrative that inhabits my work is precisely and carefully staged. I try to survey situations, investigating postures and processes within given spaces (physical or mental) - bodies, gestures, objects and locations - through the exploration of the mechanics and interactions that bind them.
