I am a New Zealand artist/curator, with a Bachelor of Visual Arts and have been based in London since 2008. As an artist I endure to express the internal, ideas and beliefs of implicit society and culture, creating and uncovering utopian ideas, ideologies for a better self and society using social commentary which bares all.
Often attempting to describe thought through text to expose internal dialogues and well known secrets which reflect on social and economic conditions. Using my own life situation as a microcosm for the outside world. Psycho babbling while describing the state of the world and states of minds on private and universal levels. Showing parallels between the ‘real’ world and the world of the mind.
Bringing a spiritual philosophy and divinity into art, treating art as religion and a life philosophy to encourage others to release what they have inside them in an artistic manner (whether music, poetry, art). Advocating a sense of calm and fulfilment through expression, purging inner demons and self adjudicated sins to empty and clear the mind of worry with paint release it as it comes to mind.
Using art as a form of meditation and self realisation, as the vessel for a journey inside and through myself, trying to find something more or capture something I’ve found already. Diving into a world of artistic existentialism to look for and find answers and universal truths Sometimes I wonder if I am trying to tell myself something that I have not yet come to realise. I catch a glimpse of my true self in a pure form during the painting process and then use the produced painting as a window to relay it back to others.
As an artist I work with a variety of mediums, my current practice focuses on abstract paintings; enduring to express ideas and beliefs implicit in society and culture while reflecting on the internal and eternal world of artistic existentialism. Though with my installation work I create spaces which defy reality in the sense that you become completely immersed in the parallel reality - my creations.
I am available for commissions, installations, exhibitions, events and would be interested in collaborating on bigger projects with other artists.
