Concepts of fear and control appear in every aspect of life as ordinary events or dull everyday actions. My work addresses seemingly contradictory positions and where emotional extremes meet in the mundane middle. Matching the polarities of safety/danger and comfort/misery, questions their stark opposition.
I work in diverse media. I combine print based work with drawings and image transfer. I blur the notion of stability to highlight that destruction and creation, pleasure and pain, fear may be simultaneously experienced as one. Recently I am examining a complexity of parenthood and family stories rooted within family history.
The aim of my work is to dispel the notion of a singular vision, where one sees laughter, another sees grief-supporting myself with references from Postmodern film, in which daily actions are elevated to mortal fears; challenged further by a Minimalism I use visual language that retreats from representation to the only most essential marks.
