Double Insight / Studio Tour

In my practice I have consistently dealt with the perception of folly, pathos and failure. Examining emotional expression and communication though theatrical endeavors, suggestive gestures and anthropomorphic shapes, the work teeters somewhere between what is humorous, and that which humiliates.

Text, objects, and the fragmented body are used to suspend belief and narrative. Here in this suspension, ideas of failure and expectancy can be transformed into a complex understanding of our social and cultural norms, behaviours and relationships.
