Profile/CV

'Viewing imagery that commerce certain ideas; the advertisement in a fashion magazine.. 
I pushed the pigment off the glossy surface of one of its pages, leaving behind a vague representation of its former content; the imagery left behind is then composed together creating an image of a face, the face of another, and perhaps the face of a viewer.  Usually it begins with drawing, trying to push the medium into a new and unfamiliar direction, sometimes forcing it to become re-translated into another medium altogether. The materials I use tend to have some kind of political relevance and act as the conceptual plot to the piece. One of my drawings was directly performed onto a cardboard template; its original purpose was to be used to make an office storage box. So, I guess an interest of mine is in abstracting the purpose and utility of objects/materials, finding out what happens when they’re altered and placed to be treated as art objects. The work has been described to be “full of little nuances’, I like to think that this beggars the idea of a silent movie separated from its vital informative text. The work attempts to initiate the stimulation of questionable perceptions.'
