THE CITY UNLOCKED

My practice is driven by change and chance, unplanned directions, a belief in the power and poignancy of the unexpected.

This body of work evolved through Lockdown and explores ideas around the liminal space, the inside of my apartment and the forbidden outside, as well as the virtual and physical worlds I inhabit.

By exploring the liminal, the existential state of hovering between two or more different planes or spaces, I can search for the moment of reveal, the threshold of revelation, presence and absence. I work with paint, print and film and the process of layering with each media in itself embodies the act of revelation; layers are obliterated and concealed, others are revealed. My films reveal these processes and concepts, and explore the unexpected, the liminal space between realities.
