My practice explores texture and materiality, as the common ground between painting in the expanded field and moving image. My recent videos have been exhibited both in cinematic and installation settings, experimenting with alternative staging of the work. Digital superimpositions are used to obscure and at times render work opaque. When set up as an installation, layers of multiple projection screens are used to further this fragmentation.

Appropriating found footage and montaging instant phone capture, creates a pluralistic environment where the familiar chaotically “dances” with memory and feeling. My works emphasise uncomfortable facial close-ups, re-engaging the viewer to lost Hollywood techniques, as well as considering the relationship between time, memory and recognition.
