at the Signature Art Prize 2018/19 Gala event with my piece ‘A True Story’

There are many ways to show you who I am.

My work explores multiple narratives. My internal narrative connects my current and past selves; the things I remember and the quite different things my family photographs tell me. I’m interested in the role of memory and particularly the role of forgetting in the stories we make out of our lives.

My work also plays with the perspective of being a twin: always together yet always separate.

The way I work is imbued with forgetfulness, circling round again and again to the ideas that I’m drawn to: how the episodes in our life-stories are connected; how our interpretation of events changes as we grow older; how we can create new stories for ourselves.¬†I realised during my MA at Wimbledon College of Arts that one of the things I kept forgetting was that I had studied archaeology for my first degree.

Like an archaeologist, I am creating a history of myself from signs, traces, juxtapositions and interpretations – a history without words, a history that is constantly renewed.
