visual art

My work is often very active/energetic and performative, I have been open in my thinking and reading into a wide variety of subjects as my practice tends to lean towards that of an experiential, ephemeral and existential line of enquiry. I have also been primarily working in a process led way from which I have been exploring drawing in the expanded field, where I have also been looking at time, duration and in particular, space.  


An open proposal for new work

I worked sympathetically with the site (or situation) in order to produce a new body of work. Through the development of my practice over the duration of my degree I have functioned by working often very performatively with a space (and exploration of) in order to respond to situation, for me this initiates working with a space rather than a dictation for it.
