Artist Statement

I am a multi-disciplinary practising artist based in Toronto. My work encompasses installations often combined with evocative sound tracks, filmed footage, organic materials and objects.

I am keenly interested in current social, political and economic issues and often use satire and paradox as operatives in my content. Reference to traditional arts and crafts has always been central to my work. Often my work problematises themes such as rigidity, orthodoxy, hegemony and tradition of all kind of political structures whether global, national, local or inter-personal and this is often done by juxtaposition of cultural motifs with contemporary imagery. A strong virtue of my artistic intentions is in balancing seduction and repulsion within the same framework.
