Artist Statement

The form and elements of my artwork, it’s methods and processes and the use of the material exist in order to open a dialogue in relation to the importance of rediscovering and maintaining cultural memory. - To promote an awareness of the importance and fragility of this memory, and of its role in defining our future appearance and identity. A continuous thread, which lies between the past, present and future.
