For me, art is always a philosophical encounter. It reveals the world as strange. Photography does this in particular, because of its apparently narrow gap between world and representation. I am interested in how we find ourselves perpetually positioned, not in the world, but hovering, as perplexed observers, on its surface.
From this perspective I use still, video and peculiar ‘one-off’ cameras, as well as found photographs, to involve the viewer in a slowed down version of looking that hopes to open conundrums of desire and blindness.
Psychoanalytic theory is a particularly valuable resource.
My practice is somewhat sporadic and after a bit of a dry period, I have enjoyed a recent experience of curating, this may indicate a new direction for engaging with ideas, fellow artists and audiences.
