My practice combines new and old media. Most recently I have produced low-tech animations employing the use of photography, drawing and other materials. Relevant everyday objects become props: t-bags, masking tape and old spectacles. These pieces exist as looped sequences essential for the communication of their subject matter.
My work portrays idealistic applications of, and gestures symbolizing, fixtures and cures. The environments created use imagined remedies for distressful psychological processes. Quick-fix mending leads to eventual unravelling in an exploration of healing contrasted with “covering-up”.
The techniques I use produce tones influenced by printing processes of the past: dated and weathered like old photographs and printed images. This, along with the repetitive nature of each piece, suggests that the stories told are locked in a past cycle.
