Mapping damage is the main consideration of my current practice. I am drawn to areas and things overlooked or discarded, whether a crumpled piece of paper, private trauma or a forgotten part of town. It is here a condition of relative invisibility exists. This creates an opportunity for a re-evaluation of value, to have a new look at how we see things. That any re-evaluation of value is accompanied by a feeling of insecurity is understandable. My work invites the viewer to pause and maybe become more accustomed to uncertainty, even vulnerability. It is precisely this location in-between, where personal experience meets the world-at-large, where the viewer might stop on the threshold and re-consider their point of view, even if only for a split second. Whether through a series of slumped drawings or an intervention in an awkward public space, my attempt is to establish a connection, even if it is one of misunderstanding, between interior and exterior dialogues, people and their surroundings.
