Artist Statement

My practice is based on the development and creation of multi-disciplinary and multi-medium artworks that negotiate human and non-human relationships with concern to the natural world, the passing of time and globaslised human environments. The process I use begins with in-depth research into subjects such as habitat loss, urbanisation, ecological distress, environmental change, and effect of human action or infrastructure on natural ecologies. This science based research is combined with site specificity, historical and literary readings, personal writings, and drawing, to form a platform for the creation of single or collective artworks. The intention of my art practice is to foster dialogical exchanges, raise environmental concerns, and project my emotional connections in an Australian context, and when relevant, with regards to the global ecosystem.
