My practice explores concepts and concerns that underpin how we as humans live and function together. Much of my research and the resulting practice deals with uncomfortable issues which can be difficult for viewers to acknowledge. This can result in work that some feel too sensitive to exhibit (as has happened here), despite my desire to advance dialogue on an issue. As my work seeks to ask questions of issues that may challenge social coherence, I aspire to disarm the viewer while exploring those unsettling notions we may prefer not to engage with.

Gilles Deleuze argues that affect or emotion forces us to engage, even involuntarily, in things we see and hear. He quotes Marcel Proust:
‘The truths which intelligence grasps directly in the open light of day have something less profound, less necessary about them than those which life has communicated to us in spite of ourselves in an impression, a material impression because it has reached us through our senses.’ (Deleuze, G. and Howard, R. (1972). Proust and Signs. New York: George Braziller, p.161)
