The fundamental core of my practice deals with states of phenomenological expression of self and connectivity of the physical and meta-physical. Intent on transcending ego my work lifts me to a heightened state of communication, exploring natural materials as means of creation and expression to connect and open discourse through ritualistic action.  Through this expression my life is given meaning and it is the searching for meaning within my life that has brought my work to its current manifestation. Performance art allows me to enter an existential plain, where the vein of an innate knowledge as Beings in this world is explored, culminating in a lexicon of works that seek to communicate, focusing on the narrative between objects and action, exploring the temporal tensions in relation to identity, striving to be read on an individual basis, seeking to go beyond the shroud of ‘modern life’.
