Research Questions

My art practice is interdisciplinary and research led, framed by an exploration into revealing the ‘myth’ of the artist’s vision against the audience reading.  I intend to expand and challenge an audiences experience whilst offering alternative bridges/means to interpret; this is usually through multi-part works that sit between ‘performance’ and ‘curation’.  However it is the continual habit of cross-referencing seemingly opposing disciplines, narrative structures and interpretative motifs that invigorate my critical concerns/subtext to my work/projects as this paves the way to widen cultural gaps and make transparent ideological conditioning for a non-didactic ‘creative frequency.

Collaboration, facilitation and non-sectarianism are at the heart of my endeavors.  On a formal level I currently find myself investigating ‘the borders between performance and documentation from a contemporary visual art perspective’ whilst not being limited by it.
