'Deptford Boat' : DVD projection
My current practice seeks to define and articulate ideas about space.

Visual narratives inherent within the work, create a dialogue that explore disparate sites as the home, the city, the countryside. Concerns within my practice are to do with sense of place and an awareness and discovery of how we realise and occupy space both in the present day real time and in our spatial and associative memories of the past. A variety of eclectic media, images and processes are employed simultaneously, in response to diverging and seemingly unrelated subject matter. What pulls the work together are the underlying concepts: the tentative relationships that individuals have with their surroundings; the everyday repetitious, mundane habitual activities that inform our perceptions.

Themes of landscape, architecture, body, are re-current within my work, and evolve from personal and generic experiences of past and present spaces, re-established through spatial siting and orientation.
