I am a moving image artist, interested in site specific projections on to and into buildings, working away from the screen using buildings and landscapes as canvas.
I work as an artist curator, in the public and community sector searching out meta-narratives found in social movements, history, sustainability and nature; forming linkages between things to create unusual open pathways for partnership working and commissioning.
I also work as a relational practioner to make art based on, or inspired by, human relations and their social context. I work as a facilitator seeing art as information exchanged between the artist, the co-creational participants and the viewers. Giving disenfranchised communities access to cultural power and the means to take creative action in the world.
In my moving image works I layer footage and edit or key back to reveal hidden layers in a way of painting. I use looping and repetitive actions to challenge the viewer's concept of linear time as a constant, in a way that the painting exists as a stationary action that does not have a temporal start middle or end.
My relational practice exists to enable disparate groups and circles of communities to link together in the sharing of the making of a formally composed set of actions to co-create an artwork as a collective, allowing space for personal reflection and creativity it challenges the separation and individually culture of the present, the I being separate from the other.
I am a biomimcry-ists exploring nature in a post-truth world where leading politicians dismiss climate change as politicized science. Where although humans are part of nature, human activity is understood as a separate category from other natural phenomena. I ask are the effects of global warming are pushing humans closer to the physical world of nature.
