By creating ambiguous narratives, loosely based on personal experience, and observed synchronicities, I try to explore the nature of being, the real and the relationship between fiction and our phaneron. Film, sculpture, drawing and performance are all mediums I use to question myself and the things I come into contact with. By seeking sincerity in the absurd, and allowing it to permeate the mundane, my work can often be read as both whimsical and tragically heartfelt.
