Artist statement

I am interested in employing perception-shifting tactics to examine the relationship between reality and representation.

I explore how the formal elements of sculptural object, space and form can be altered to generate moments of curious disruption and playful confusion, employing illusions such as trompe l’oeil, inversions and reversals – investigating unconsidered spaces, lending form to in-between spaces, negative spaces, shadows and gaps in order to give importance to that which is normally overlooked and unacknowledged. 

I aim to open up a conversation about destabilizing the perceptions of two and three-dimensional space and diving further - considering what constitutes form and the degree to which an object or space can deny its apparent fixity.
