"My work assumes a vernacular that tears up and cuts out, magnifying symbols that determine, question or potentially threaten aspects of my identity. Photography features as an integral component of my personal practice: crucial as I develop my processes, through drawing, collage and print. Repeated text and imagery act as logos within the works: as a metaphor for branding within an art context, questioning the nature of consumerism, with an emphasis on a personal fascination with everyday aesthetics. The works offer a proliferation of meaning, shift existing perceptions of reality and question the nature of artwork."
