ARTIST STATEMENT

My work has for the past 25 years framed a Metamodernist approach of oscillation between memory and social issues represented through video art, painting, collage, and installation. Within this structure, I work in a method of long term, ongoing series of works that address a particular thematic situated within my practice.

 

My current work is comprised of the 'iLandscape' series (2007- ) which recontextualises memory and art history through badly sung pop music, 'iCandy' (2007- ) which addresses memory and the reclamation of how women are perceived through beauty, and ‘Aesthetic Disruption' (2018- ) which recontextualises print media aesthetics through video and collage, 'Colour field series (2015-) which recontextualises memory and the study of colour through synthetic polymer paint on canvas and video.
