My work is primarily concerned with the tragi-comic absurdity of the human condition. Exploring ideas around around art history, auto-biography, mythology and contemporary society. This often involves the creation of alternative histories and fictional narratives which take form in a variety of media including sculpture, graphic novels, video documentary, character acting, costume and set design, script writing and multi-media installation.
