The Real as Spectacle

The act of discovery, the power of curiosity, trial and error, the possibility of play – these factors feed into an endless cycle of creation and decomposition that characterises both the natural and human-made worlds. This impermanent nature of sensory experience occupies my field of creative inquiry.

I am interested in perception, particularly in how belief and imagination can play out in our encounters with art. These works draw inspiration from the observed world and the notion that a tangible, perhaps ephemeral object or moment can somehow be brought back to life—reinterpreted through the artist’s hand as re-made readymades.
