“But no sooner have they been adumbrated than all these groupings dissolve again, for the field of identity that sustains them, however limited it may be, is still too wide not to be unstable; and so the … mind continues to infinity, creating groups then dispersing them again, heaping up diverse similarities, destroying those that seem clearest, splitting up things that are identical, superimposing different criteria, frenziedly beginning all over again…”
– M. Foucault The Order of Things
My work is lodged at a crossroads between multiple polarities. It is at once a painting, a drawing and a collage; it s also an embroidery and a sculpture. By combining all of these elements, images overlap with one another to create strange, new hybrids. My work is also informed primarily by the materiality and physicality of the making process. Existing in a state of transit, these works inhabit a space of movement and change. They reflect upon displacement and identity as a way to render them abstract from their loaded histories. I explore states of being and non-being and the re-contextualisation of movement and the body.
