What do we keep to ourselves and what do we share with others? How do we navigate the constant permanence of change in our lives?
My work focuses on visually exploring the concepts of identity, memory, our own palimpsest of hidden thoughts and feelings and individual vulnerability in the face of life events. Music, the written word and the water element inform the creative process, both conceptually and visually. Words are the starting point to a reflection on life expectations, personal choices and the relationship between our ideals and what we truly accomplish. I am driven to create images of atmospheric and contemplative features, that pause and breathe silence. It is through a physical challenge with the control of the actual rawness of the surface of the paintings and the materials that a visual metaphor for our restless and ambivalent inner world is created.

‘The Cambridge Show’ brings together work by twenty-two artists who live or work in and around Cambridge. Showcasing a cross-section of the artistic community operating in the local area, from photography to performance, the exhibition will explore these artists’ diverse practices, and some of the themes and issues that they are engaging with right now.
