Statement/Biography

Artist Statement

My work focuses on the unique beauty and sensuality of seclusion plus the search for a sense of purpose and place … sometimes aggressive and disturbing, other times finding proximity and intimacy, yet often discovering the tranquility in separation and detachment.

Having never formally studied art, I attempt not to over-complicate my process. I shoot 35mm film and transparencies, then scan and print the images with minimal alteration. All work is untitled, undated and is often non-location-specific as I want to allow people to interact with the images in their own space with no preconceived notions as to what it is they are seeing.

Biography

Born and raised in Australia, I came to photography as a means of conveying my isolation while traveling, using the camera to articulate the overwhelming sense of loneliness encountered. Since settling in New York, I have further explored the idea of solitude - by looking at the way we view and interact with other animals, our environment and each other - through on-going projects, collaborations and exhibitions.
