I am interested in art as a social tool, a means of inciting discussion by introducing new ways of understanding or configuring the world and our relationship to it. My practice is not one of absolutes or of ‘grand concept'. Producing artwork is, for me, a means of raising questions. The artworks I produce commonly bring together a multiplicity of ideas, to embody something of the complexity which in a late-capitalist society constitutes ‘the everyday'. It is important for the individual to consider that ‘something' as flexible and open; something which they, as a member of a society, can contribute to and inform, despite what the structure of a capitalist democracy might suggest.
