Constructing busy compositions, juxtaposing
them with stylised movement with documentary
footage to highlight contrasts between the
interior and exterior representation of spaces.
Referring to issues and conflicts present around me;
my work devises a view into a refracted memory.
This prevails in Awaiting eviction
as the photographs map a space
caught in an uncertainty,
yet holding a nostalgic narrative.
Symbols of society are used within my practice
to exemplify the physicality of spaces we inhabit,
with process’ of layering of imagery urges viewers to
reflect on the ephemerality of our experience.
This leads to thoughts of home,
scrutinising their fragility.
Working with actions occurring presently,
my work asks to explore the systematic
cycles of social cleansing that actualise
around us.These themes emerge in
‘Better Queensway’, which showcases a
narrative of pending erasure of a social housing
estate. The works aims to evoke an empathy
towards the demolition and loss of the home.
