What is belonging? How do I construct the fragile reality of ‘home’ and the parallel reality of ‘mind’? How do these realities coexist, relate and define each other? What roles do memories and thoughts play in anchoring us in space and time?

By dismantling and reassembling, arranging, containing and comparing, my practice seeks answers to these questions. Through printmaking, collage, built environments, collected objects, assemblages, miniatures and drawing, I explore my domestic surroundings, my interior conscious topography and subconscious escapes. I question and challenge the random, orchestrating connections for narrative and aesthetic purposes.

My work is informed by the Fluxus, Dada and Surrealist movements as well as children’s/naïve art. I explore combinations of everyday objects and events, the subconscious, the ready-made and the role of creative choice. My work invites interaction and shared participation in the random moments which make up life, like pieces in a game
