Director Statement

I find that I am often inspired by experimental work and grey moments in time, more specifically, having a deep attraction to moments that conceptually and thematically revolve around the notion of “When are we?”. Projects often develop from observation, cultural immersion and occasionally research which frequently incorporate elements of exploration, artifact, (human) nature and time. One subject that I find compelling is social dynamics; amplified by the side effects of technology. My personal practice/gallery work often depicts conceptual portraiture within an accelerated world, much of which I believe has been largely influenced by unmarked visits to industrial Cuba, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
