  About

I am a multidisciplinary artist and the purpose of my research is to playfully reveal the question of aesthetics and domination.The concept of social or Political art is the main essence of enquiry in my work. I use absurdity, humour and distortion to highlight this exploration. I am touching and revealing on the notion of difference and ambiguity. The performative aspects of my practice explore the overlooked and plain–site of public reception. These images crawl, roll and flip gesture towards a visual break from the associated conventions of the marginalised self whilst equally suggesting joy and ambivalence.
