I am curious about the world around me - the extraordinary contained within the ordinary – often observed at an interface between rural and urban environments. I try to capture the uncanny moments of the everyday within the possibilities of the past by video, sound, photography, found objects, performance and text , intuitively following an investigation of deeply mined emotional and physical connections.
The relationship with my work is both co-dependant and alien with a certain disjunction and disorientation. Video work is used specifically to cultivate an anthropological investigation, often with one element dominating and sound is an increasingly important element.
My own thinking and independent research link my ideas and investigations, refining concepts to create a world of observation, which at times can be melancholic, yet without being overly nostalgic. Overall I am an artist documentarian curious and non-judgemental in my approach.
