Artist Statement

As a Fine Artist, my work focusing on the exploration of human existence, looking at it anatomically as well as conceptually. I have explored the idea of our existence in a range of ways including, the universe and societal issues of body shape and anorexia but currently, I am looking into the expression of the human body through movement and distortion. I believe distorting the body enables you to truly see it. You need to look deeper, really seeing the body.

My current work explores the human body anatomically through life drawing and ‘people watching’. I am fascinated by the way the body moves naturally in day to day life. Our bodies move, distorting our shape and contours forming interesting positions. I used charcoal and chalk in mist of my work because with the use of long fluid marks, you can begin to form movement in the work. When working on quick drawings, the charcoal allows you to make fast marks to begin to form the shape of the figure.
