'My interest lies in exploring the relationship between space, light and the mind in order to explore notions of the intangible world. I am fascinated in the way natural light subtly reveals unexpected images, sensations and time.
The process of photography is important in my work as it exposes the dialogue between human perception and the photographic image enabling me to compare and relate my visual perception and imagination to the images which photography has captured.
Another aspect of my work is the creation of site-specific spaces, which are prepared for the viewer to encounter images such as fleeting moments of changing natural light and to provoke their own perception and imagination.
Part of the source of my work stems from my sense of being part of a diaspora which has emphasised subtle differences and nuances of meaning through shifting cultural translation. In a sense this parallels my experience of the visual fleeting world and it’s psychological dimensions.'
