BA (Hons) Fine Art
My work navigates existentialism, misanthropy, shyness, and non-verbalism through painting and installation. I have always had an intense care for animals and throughout my life have been aware of the problems of domestication and human interference, but more prominently for me, the difficulty of relating to their fear without humanising them. This is crucial to my work’s context.
Alongside my sustained painting practice (for which I was nominated for the Freelands Painting Prize 2022), I explore incoherence and obstruction through creative writing, accessing the more direct communicative form to emphasise the element of language in my physical work. This is a relationship I explore through the curation of text and image in self-made publications.
