ABOUT
My practice explores how new, virtual spaces echo the history of immersion and illusion techniques. I use painting, digital media and installation as a means of blurring the lines between the authentic and artificial; a line which is becoming harder to distinguish. There is a question surrounding the ‘realness’ of digital space. Through combing physical constructs with new technologies, I hope to play with the convergence of the digital and physical. Our transfixion with escapism forces us to abstract the ordinary; to take the mundane and expand it in some sense. This leads to a fascination with manipulated archives, where we experience a reality that is augmented from our own.
