What is belonging? How do I construct the fragile reality of "home" and the parallel reality of "mind"? How do these realities co-exist, relate and define each other? What roles do memories and thoughts play in anchoring us in space and time?
Through the processes of dismantling and reassembling, arranging, containing and comparing, my practice seeks to find answers to these questions. By using 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. Combinations of everyday objects and events, the subconscious, the ready-made and the role of creative choice are explored in the work. It invites interaction and shared participation in the random moments which make up life, like pieces in a game or puzzle.
