I make work that explores the different approaches and languages we use to understand each other, looking at how we place value on the things we talk about.
I am also interested in the politics of language. If there is a rigid set of rules as to how we use language, what happens to the people, their stories and ideas which do not fit into this system?
I investigate how we see and read the world. What is more important a classical Greek statue, a conceptual artwork, a piece of theatre, a child’s drawing or some folk art? How do we look at a landscape? Is it an environment that holds a thousand stories, a romantic place freed from the problems of urban life or a place of industry?
I do this by creating art in partnership with cultural organisations, running community and educational activities and creating affordable artworks.
