I work in a very broad range of mediums including sculpture, photography, painting, wearable art, video and live performance.
My current body of work references mythological motifs, theatrical aesthetics, butoh and the gothic in order to place the primal, desperate and erotic cycle of birth and decay found in human existence within the automatic physicality and emotion of the body. This abstracted narrative of bodily flux and metamorphosis is at once mournful and romanticised, and is formed in a cross-disciplinary space of representation and performative action/interaction.
