The Functional Object in Painting.
The Re-Presentation of Artefact.
The (Re)Signification of Value.
The Dialogue in Space.
My work combines found objects, manipulated semiotics and painterly language to create installations of component artworks that aim to question our perceptions of the things we are looking at and the ways we are looking at them.
Nominating combinations object and process as work itself, my practice represents the process of making and re-presents that process to the viewer.
I think the most important element is the challenge to look at things differently; to see the narrative in the questioning of ‘Art’. After all; Which is more real the object or the way we frame it?
My purpose is to create things that allow questioning to happen, they don't only represent the idea, they are the idea.
Without them there is no idea.
