Artist statement:

I endeavour to make art works that have an engaging and meaningful content. I am interested in interacting with the viewer of the art works and engaging some sort of emotional and physical response. I want to remain actively open and engaged in my creative development and keep my means of expression and delivery open. I believe to use the freedom and breadth of possibilities in contemporary art, is part the work of an artist today, and I endeavour to keep the discourse open.

As an artist I try to identify things that are significant in our time, and experience and lay them down in some sort of tangible form. The notion of giving back to nature has become an important underlying concern in development of my current work, as has interaction and involment of the viewer in the art work. I use digital photography as a way of documenting and recording actions, performances and interventions. I am interested in making work that embraces some psychological interest or has a meaningful significance. Above all I aspire to make artwork with some meaningful content, aesthetic merit and of a lasting significance.
