About

I am a visual artist based in Narrm/Melbourne. I work between painting and the moving image. I recently completed a MFA at Monash University in Melbourne researching connections between concepts of time and vitality, by looking at what emerges over time through the operations of different material traces, specifically, in my own work through the differing demands of painting and the moving image. In recent years I have participated in residency programs including the International Summer Residency Program at RM, an artist run space in Auckland in 2015; at The Banff Centre in Banff, Canada in 2013 for a project funded by Creative Victoria; and in 2011 for the collaborative thematic program 'Something in the water; a search for the turn of the backwash' led by faculty Adam Chodzko, Simon Starling, and Martin Clark. 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, Auckland, NZ; Fields and snow (2013), Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney. 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. I am currently a resident artist at Shakespeare Grove Studios in St Kilda.
