about the exhibition
“My artworks are based upon the relationships between people, animals and objects in everyday life. Moments of activity, of contemplation or unguarded moments when no one is watching are the moments when people can reveal their true nature and it is these moments I try to capture. I intend for my artworks to have a sense of ambiguity as to a story or meaning. This ambiguity leaves the viewer responsible to interpret and create meaning for him or herself from the artwork. In doing so I hope to reflect the gap of subjectivity and how our life is made from these moments.”
