Having been born and brought up in South Africa, my practice is particularly concerned with exploring aspects of human migration in relation to the landscape. It looks at ways in which human beings form attachments to their surroundings and how when separated from a familiar environment, people may suffer from traumatic emotions such as dislocation and displacement.

The formal elements of my work make use of simplified and muted assemblages to create poetic metaphors that are a reflection on these emotions. The work does not claim to offer clues to a specific place or event, but rather aims to trigger a myriad of half remembered moments and sites to which there is no possibility of return.
