Bachelor of Fine Arts (Drawing & Printmaking)
My work examines relationships between material and body, between body and desire, between desire and material. Looking at the ways in which materials such as fabric or leather are used to signal identity to others in the know, my practice is an exploration of the communication encoded in the ways we furnish our homes and bodies.
Incorporating coded aesthetics into art objects, I explore how materials speak to the absent body and become sites of queer communication and desire. Through a process of extracting and re-encoding these material languages, I deepen my understanding of their functions and histories. My work is the output of this process, the physical artefacts of my enquiries and tests of legibility.
