About

I am a visual artist based in Narrm Melbourne. I work between painting and the moving image. I want images to be like a day, continually changing, even if imperceptibly. Or to feel as though the wind passes through them. What I mean is that I want to find equivalence in both how works are constituted in the world, and across the materials that I work with, somehow. Wind, or air passes through and touches everything, and correlates to ordinary lived experience, and the changing light of a day makes apparent that while some things are visible in one time and place they may not be at another.

I am currently completing a MFA at Monash University. My research focusses on connections between concepts of time and vitality, by looking at what emerges over time in the combination of paintings and moving images. 
I have participated in residency programs at RM in Auckland, and at The Banff Centre in Canada including the thematic program 'Something in the water; a search for the turn of the backwash' with faculty Adam Chodzko, Simon Starling, and Martin Clark in 2011. Recent solo exhibitions include: If the moon moves water, the sun moves shadows (2017), MFA Exhibition, Seventh Gallery, Melbourne; Paintings and Films (2017) RM Gallery, Auckland, NZ; Between the sky and the ground II (2016), Bus Projects, Melbourne; Between the sky and the ground (2014) Northern Centre for Contemporary Art, Darwin; Image/Air (2013), Window Online, Auckland, New Zealand; Fields and snow (2013), Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney & (2012) Bus Projects, Melbourne. Group exhibitions include: Transient (2017), Melbourne Fringe Festival, St Kilda; vis-à-vis (2014), A Staple Space, Melbourne; hesitation (2014), Bus Projects, Melbourne; The Walking Encyclopaedia (2014), Air Space Gallery, Stroke-on-Trent, UK.
