My artistic practice engages with symbolic, cultural and anthropological readings of the body. The skins surface is a boundary, receptive to patterning, mapping and fragmenting. The continual reconstruction of imagery allows for a negotiation of that dichotomy between the civilized self and the instinctive, untamed self; which I explore through hybridity and its symbolism, creating my own mythological language. This fracturing of imagery further investigates notions of displacement and belonging, evoking a sense of unease and disconnectedness. This is particularly relevant to my own cultural history.
