Artist Statement

I photograph, scan, create websites, video and a variety of other formats in order to make my work as personal as possible. My art comes from a very personal place, often looking at themes such as my feminism and my fears. I’ve always been fascinated by anything medical so my work usually takes a visceral direction in the form of human abstraction and the colour pink. The work I create is usually a combination of different mediums as I choose to express myself in various ways including my love of writing poetry. I am heavily influenced by riot grrrl culture. After having discovered it as a child, it has been the one thing I identify with the most, meaning it often creeps up in my work even if it wasn’t necessarily anything to do with riot grrrl. I like to try and make my work visually very strong, as that’s the sort of work I am most attracted to personally. I also think it reflects the strength of my emotionally attachment to the things I am creating.

Art I’m Digging: Clinical violence edition

This is one of my new favourite film scenes of all time. I love the clinical feel of this film, the beautiful contrast of the white with the blood, the clean with the violence. One day I hope to be able to find away to re-create this scene in some way, shape or form.

 

Some people would argue the legitimacy of wrestling as art, however I see this promo by Jon Moxley to be performance art. It is intense and beautifully executed. The environment in which it’s filmed with the blood is a great combination. I love the instability of the promo.

I’ve been thinking for a while about doing a project where I use specimen slides and have them filled with bits of me. My hair, blood, eyebrow, skin and spit. I would have them set up with a microscope and have the installation be interactive. I would call it ‘We Must Remain’.


Art I’m digging: Uncomfortable edition

I’ve been trying to find art work that moves me through making me feel uncomfortable. I find the most honest emotions are the ones that move you and it’s difficult to explain why.
