Item Description

Islands 2011

I started working on these as an antithesis to my making figurative images.

My curiosity led me to examine my identity, location and how it is in constant flux. We are presented with things around us, each with varying impact and outcome.

Giving it the ability to play various visual roles.

My interest lies in how identities will look
when impacted with these authoring devices and the kind of visual contentions which arise when an element is overwritten with another.

This body of work began in 2009; with the first
series, called, Inconsequential consequences of hope.
