As a visual artist my practise is often project-based and relates to other fields of expression and disciplines, such as the written word – literature and poetry – photography, the cinematic image and music. I am interested in exploring the reciprocal contamination of word and image, and the territory where they meet, with attention to the narrative of the image and the visual potential of the word. I am fascinated by traces and signs, not only as bearers of meanings but also for what they evoke on a personal level and moreover as entities in themselves. Making work is a sort of alchemical operation, the result of mixing many ingredients. Each series of work has therefore a genesis and a concept of its own, which is never totally pre-constructed, but develops organically as the work progresses.
