CREATIVE PRACTICE

The topics of my previous work and my current work stem from a desire to discuss or confront topics that western society generally considers taboo or uncomfortable to address in conversation.

I aim to encapsulate the darkness of these conversations, not wishing to make light of the discomfort felt around subjects such as menstruation (in my work '28') or the cycle of life (in my current work The Shape of a Day), but instead to use intensity and occasional dark humour to encourage confrontational thoughts surrounding the subjects, in a way, to display the so-called 'horror' of these topics directly and encourage an understanding of why that taboo exists but also, why it's worth addressing.
