From a young age, I was taught to navigate life’s ups and downs independently. The solitude in which I spent most of my hardships taught me a deep sense of introspection. The complexities of the human condition captivate me: the way our internal emotions contradict, co-exist, sabotage and withdraw. My practice is based around these emotional experiences, in which I explore themes such as loneliness, isolation, trauma and identity.
I capture, reconstruct and manipulate environments that mirror the darker, solitary aspects of the human mind, establishing a paradoxical interplay between familiarity and discomfort. Whether reflecting on personal experiences, capturing intense emotions, or exploring the deeper layers of the human psyche, I always strive to create images that resonate with the viewer. My intention is to enable the viewer to recognise a part of themselves in my work.
I work with various media including photography, video, text, sound, sculpture, archival material and installation. By employing a variety of media, I aim to engage the senses and create a stimulating and immersive experience, allowing the viewer to be engulfed in an emotional journey.
