I have always focused on portraying photography is its purest form, concentrating on the following themes; perception, time, space light and truth.
In 2011 I completed my masters in Photography at the Tasmanian School of Art, University of Tasmania and in 2017 took part in an artist residency in Berlin. I have shown with in Hobart’s Long Gallery, Good Grief Studios, Henry Jones Art Hotel, Plimsol Gallery and in Berlin. I am currently represented by the Bett Gallery, Hobart.
Throughout my undergraduate works I explored stripping back the detail from a photograph, and leaving the viewer with their subconscious assumptions. In my post-graduate studies I limited my materials to merely white paper, natural and tungsten light, to create images that resembled landscapes. This exploration developed into an interest of the role photography plays in the perception of space and a new concept of Heterotopia derived from Michel Foucault which continues as a theme throughout my works. My work is currently evolving into 3D as I just exhibited an installation piece, Breadth, and am currently working on a commissioned sculpture from Arts Tasmania.
