Statement, Articles, Exhibitions and Bio
My work has always been executed in a project-based manner, which has allowed me great flexibility with materials, approaches and concepts. Printmaking has aided my understanding of how images work by offering chances to deconstruct the process of creation. The multi-faceted nature of my image-making practice demands a multitude of readings, something I see as freeing and vital in a visual culture that offers few unmediated primary experiences. To the end that I can create work that engages the conscience as well as the senses, I intend to continue using art as a machine that challenges viewers by reversing visual and thematic polarities to enhance the primary experience of looking.
