Artist Statement

Current work considers varied aspects of using text to visually convey linguistic ideas. What language is and how it is used are the areas I explore, using contrariness and deconstruction among other considerations.

Since graduating in 2006 I’ve exhibited Nationally in solo; joint; and group exhibitions.
The work is based on a reconfiguration of the final two lines of dialogue and the last stage direction of Becketts ‘WAITING FOR GODOT’.
The title of the project, ‘If Not Here Where’ holds a Beckettian quality and the notion of inertness, a disinclination to act is suggested.
