I was born in London in 1988 and studied at Byam Shaw School of Art and at The Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing at Oxford University. I currently live and work in London.
My work over the past few years has been guided by an interest in the interconnectivity of all living things. It draws on systems of belief from the spiritual to the scientific, the micro to the macro and the conflicting or confluent universal forces that govern them.
Through drawing, burning, moving 3D installation and light work, I investigate the invisible currents that permeate our everyday existence. Time, breath, pulse, energy pathways, psychological cartographies; those things which are felt or heard rather then seen.
With a focus on drawing I employ a wide variety of mediums and processes. I use a combination of unconventional methods of mark making, a lit incense stick, gunpowder, chemicals, thread, and light as well as the more conventional pen and ink. The choice of material and the process are inextricably bound with the concepts. The materials carry meaning in their physical properties.
Everything is in flux, evolving, growing dying and dissolving in a perpetual cycle. I am compelled by the tensions that exist between the transient and the permanent; between form and the void, and what is material and immaterial.
“At any given moment there are countless thoughts within each and every one of us that intersect, overlap, influence and distort one another. If we think about how we are thinking then we are aware of this process but we are unable to say what is going on and why. Everything that we experience adds to the complexity of our inner sea and to the world that is always the process of our making.”
