My work is rooted in the overlooked histories of specific sites or artefacts. I am curious about what’s concealed within the vastness of the institutional archive. I work from stories as well as from physical traces to unearth and amplify the incidental and uncover new ways of engaging with our given history.I work across a range of mediums and techniques and have a deep affinity with my materials. Drawings are made in charcoal dust and chalk. I make imprints, cast glass and plaster objects and work with analogue photographic processes. This visual vocabulary is in keeping with my fascinations: trace, erasure and the passing of time.
