Recent Works 2016-2019
In my current body of work, I frequently reference objects such as bridges, tunnels and walls as metaphors for my observations on human behavior, particularly behavior relating to power and subjugation. Much of the inspiration for these works revolves around the reality and inevitability of loss; the lengths we go to to protect the things that are meaningful to us, and the intersection between power, subjugation, gain and loss.
You will see structures with elaborate outer shells, these are interventions designed to protect fragile interiors, sometimes at the expense of radically altering the inner core in the process.
There are barriers intended to control, protect, divide and separate, and there are cross sectional ‘landscapes’ where life forces are mostly hidden or driven underground.
Amidst all this, there are many moments of ubiquitous hope and defiance.
