VCA ART 2021

Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting)

I am intrigued by the power and beauty of superficial images, and the parallels between prayer and artistic practice. I use the medium of video to indulge in the creation of images that could be considered shallow and unironically feminine or facile, turning them into thoughtful, atmospheric sequences – purely evocative and nothing else.
