    About the artist

    Artist, writer and curator and co-founder of Invisible Print Studio

    My work exists as a distillation of my encounters with mass media; carefully selecting examples from cinema, literature, music and television I endeavour to extend emotional readings beyond mere signifiers by fusing disparate images and text. I am now connecting elements of my practice that, although interrelated, have always been realised separately. As a founder of Invisible Print Studio, and its printmaker, I approach the realisation of artists work into print as part of my curatorial practice. The printing process becomes a set of alternating guidelines that can be moulded and adapted to each artists wants and needs to create bespoke artworks that have a conceptual significance.
