For me the challenge of fine art practice is exploring how to get attention and hold it, how to provoke thought, how to agitate not dictate, and to create evidence of thinking and of wonder rather than polemics. I have also endeavored to find a language that works in the space in between figuration and abstraction, the familiar and uncanny, beauty and ugliness and satire and tragedy.
Digital technology has enabled me to develop work that reflects the themes underpinning my practice such as the semiotics and aesthetics of nostalgia, art, activism, mass media, commerce and political power, and that reflects the products and language inherent within our digital landscapes. Our relationship with digital worlds is fragmentary and repetitious, and my work intentionally reflects this. We post, flag, tag and share but what do we take in, what do notice and what do we learn?
