I am a visual artist based in Brighton, UK. I make work primarily with photography and moving image but also use audio, book making and installation. I was awarded the degree of Master of Arts in Photography from the University of Brighton, with Distinction, in 2017.
My practise is concerned primarily with ideas of landscape, narrative and liminality, using them to explore the temporal space between transience and permanence.
The working process requires patient and repeated exploration of each location, an endeavour not immediately apparent and yet indelibly inscribed into the work. Human presence is implied but never depicted.
My most recent, intimately related, work Hogsmill Valley (1977) and It Happened Here investigate my concerns via obsession and repetition.
I am currently in the preliminary stages of making new work, with the preliminary title Like, Forever. It will explore our perception of different time scales related to a very particular type of human endeavour in the British landscape, and consider it in the context of the immediate present, historical, and geological time.
My work has been collected internationally and exhibited widely, including the Royal Academy of Art, Royal Scottish Academy, Towner Gallery and Somerset House.
