Artist Statement

My work explores the relationship between recipient and the creator of media. Simple concepts really, but with influences as diverse as Edward Lear and Chris Watson, new tensions are distilled from both opaque and transparent narratives.

Ever since I was a pre-adolescent I have been fascinated by the theoretical limits of art. What starts out as triumph soon becomes corrupted into a carnival of greed, leaving only a sense of what could have been and the dawn of a newer comprehension.

As subtle forms become frozen through emergent and critical practice, both the artist and patron are left with a phantasm from the edges of understanding.
