As an artist, I am most inspired when I travel. Removed from the daily grind, I thrive as an anonymous observer and collector of interactions.
Travel is an essential medium on my palette. The places & experiences I seek enrich all aspects of my artistic practice, expand my anthropological research and my ongoing collection of references. I quench my curiosity at the banks of established cultural temples, art fairs, alternative spaces & obscure niches of culture. I find inspiration by observing who attends, how technology influences the experience and how the act of viewing contorts the body.
My art questions how has social media changed the way we absorb culture? Who is the presentation of culture for?
