Statement

Statement

In my practise, I explore the concept of reality, truth and authenticity. I work in a fashion similar to that of an archaeologist or alchemist, utilising fragments of information in the form of artefacts and narratives which I transform, replicate and disrupt through a variety of processes both traditional and contemporary. The work always exists in a state of in-betweeness, or between two opposites whether it be between original and copy, object and image, digital and analogue, immaterial and material, growth and decay, past and future, natural and synthetic, truth and fiction. I often begin by appropriating a historical artefact or a historical narrative which I bring into a dialogue with our technological present.
