"At present, my work explores human sensory perception in architectural provisional spaces. I connect them to allow the viewer to recognise and interpret a familiar place. Experiences of loss, nostalgia and forgotten pasts are suggested through my use of transparent layers of imagery that are transformed unexpectedly.
I provide an ambiguous space for the viewer to recall the peripheral. A space that is in the midst of current, perpetual transformation; non-space.
I am interested in creating a sense of division using chaos and order to evoke an uncanny effect or altered cognitive states. This can be an indication of displacement. This can occur when one is confronted with the reality of reflecting on what once was."
