My work is an ongoing investigation into the notion of interconnectedness, drawing from life experiences which are informed by growing up in a cross-cultural environment and my personal archive. I actively research and observe the meaning of mundanity to give eternal value to seemingly insignificant places and objects. As a result the notion of preserving languages, traditions, domestic settings and everyday objects in a state of flux – meaning – digital and physical due to digitalisation and globalisation, takes precedence in my work. My priority is to bring the individual experience into a broader communal context and show the parallels between our common needs, objects and experiences with the notion of care as a fundamental aspect of being.
As an artist I subvert and challenge the traditional application of printmaking by experimenting with a range of artistic mediums which intersect at painting, photography, print, drawing, collage, video, sculpture and installation using the photographic image and mark making as a recurring element. Exploring experimental forms of print in combination with analog techniques creating a juxtaposition between surfaces and the image. The application of layering in my work is to display the complexity that makes up the present as a marker of the simultaneous. With these techniques I want to challenge ideas of digital materiality, painting and the reproductive image.
