Through my practice- which involves painting, photography and poetry- I explore psychoanalytical ideas of relationships, the self, and the natural world. I aim to produce a connection between myself and the audience through my works, which tends to act as a remedial or restorative process that is both fundamental and confrontational. The canvas or page becomes a physical space to both contain my emotions and externalise my inner world in a way which somehow becomes beautiful in its honesty. I believe honesty is the true fabrication of beauty.
I see the world in a deeply emotional way. For me, forms of nature and civilisation all project feeling. I try to avoid dismissing things that are uncomfortable. My experience lies at the centrefold of my work; poetry acts as a social commentary through the lens of my emotions and my paintings seem to replicate these things in an actual way. The theory of containment is becoming more visually evident in my work - the older I become the more I’m trying to contain. My work is a reflection of myself, my history and the world that surrounds it; I hope it always grows as I do and in turn evokes something true and honest in others.
