Artist statement:
At the core of my practice is an interest in humour and language and their ability to engage with areas of slippage and overlap. Since graduating with honours in 2006, I have worked across various media, including sculpture, drawing, painting, video, and installation. During this time, I have also experimented with collaboration, sound, performance, writing, and music-based events.

My work often develops from my engagement with text and semiotics and my concern with the tropes of the underclass. I am interested in using humour and language to find new ways of understanding how the complex field of intellectual and socio-political contexts impact on the role and expectations of contemporary art. I am also drawn to humour as a possible strategy for deflecting traditional systems of exegesis.
