Through my art practice I am interested in exploring the physiological, emotional and psychological complexities of consciousness. Through the creation of layered compositions that incorporate different textures, materials, geometric patterns and perspectival logics, I hope to open up a space for the consideration of the embodied nature of perception. My work is informed by my research in the fields of anthropology, philosophy and consciousness studies. Each body of work I create is a dedicated exploration of a unique facet of my interests, with thinking and making inextricably linked in my process. At the heart of my practice is a fascination with our affective, visceral engagement with art and the world.
