Artist Statement

I am concerned with the making of objects and images,their transformation and re-presentation as objects of desire.I make reference to sexuality,pleasure and personal and collective histories.I also acknowledge the dark side of the psyche and the cathartic power of fantasy and illusion.

Transformations can occur on physical,emotional and psychological levels.

I engage with ideas concerning the emotional investments we make in relation to objects,images,spaces and places and the perceptual and conceptual constructs or projections we create in order to understand our relationship with something and fulfill our desire for meaning.

The idea of doubles,mirror images,opposites and dualities hold my attention.I am also concerned with ideas of inversion,subversion and displacement,multiple and serial forms as well as the implications of concealing and revealing,of what is hidden beneath the surfaces of things and how these surfaces reveal other complexities.
