I work as an artist. I am interested in categorical systems, liminality and the dissonance of inbetweens where meaning is leaky, slippery, defiant, fugitive, violent and erotic too.

normals standards means bodies borders boundaries. rules limits margins. edges thresholds and horizons. language Classifications definitions discipline expectation roles. Species tribe caste creed status containers boxes and compartments. viewfinders lenses screens. Nation States island prisons security fences (Human) zoos. Anthropology Ethnography Photography. index and evidence and Museology too.

The things I make result from focussed looking, chasing references, finding out. Burrowing through the network into curiously real and visceral worlds. Alice fell through the trembling liquid crystal, landed somewhere factual, palpable, sensate. feeling Movie-ish. Big Screen. VR for its strangeness but for that people are flesh, embodied narrativeolfactory on fire. Witness…

I submit to art as life and process to live by, aiming to work intuitively, sensually and from my animality as a conscious migratory creature of our earthly bed. I am conspicuously bodied. My artworks deploy body as instrument. Fact, agent, material. The body embodiment continuum. I do not create with the topic of bodies as purpose or intention. My work is not conceptual in that way. My artworks are stills for persistent, unsettling and thorney awakenings of life enslaved to my times. Native of nowhere on Colonized land, mammalian. Historic / contemporary. digital. informational, touchless, late-binary. urban, Capitalist, millenarian (end times). I create with whatever surfaces then sticks around to assert itself.
