"Inside" provides a critique of the superficial; questioning how the briefest of encounters force us to make judgments based on appearances. Blank Canvas examines the misconceptions of social and cultural stereotypes providing a critique of the concepts of modern beauty. Intended, instead, as a celebration of human difference; of uniqueness and diversity. As a humble attempt at honoring the unorthodox. Requesting the viewer to look beyond the distraction of discernible imperfections and instead to revel in the flawed otherness. Perfection is often revered by our society and this work challenges the idea that imperfection, somehow, devalues the human condition.


As a visual communicator and academic, my artwork transverses the intersections between art, design, and theory; combining typography, layout, photography, and illustration. Often highlighting controversial cultural and social issues, my work rejects conformity and challenges convention by inviting the viewer to contemplate their own prejudices and preconceptions; it agitates in a loud and unexpected manner yet can be quirky in tone in an attempt to persuade and influence. Whilst I utilize a variety of materials in the creation of my work, with these choices determined by the scope of each individual project, there is a common core to my creative practice, which stems from the notion of trust. I use my practice to explore this notion and delve into its oxymoronic, complex yet nuanced facets; viewing trust through the lenses of asymmetry, nostalgia, security, and imperfection. Through these multiple lenses, the main goal of my work is to afford a holistic interpretation of trust which embraces the unorthodox.
