'My works are informed by phenomenological methodologies in which intuitive and responsive approaches dominate. Layering as physical state, as well as within memory and perception, are central concerns. Additionally, concepts of the immersive, haptic and abject are of importance. Detritus is used as material, as subject matter and as artwork in its own right.
Issues of class and the impact of exploitative financial, religious and patriarchal structures drive lines of enquiry and material choices. Societal shifts as a result of technology have inspired an interest in the relationship between materiality and the dematerialising nature of digital media. I am increasingly engaged with a multidisciplinary approach which explores the relationships between painting, sculpture and installation.'
