‘Chaos’ and ‘Order’ are themes that repeatedly surface in my work alongside a curatorial approach to practice. It is a natural response to create a personal sense of order from what can be everyday items around me; a processing mechanism and a specific way of creating meaning or narrative. The use of museological references through particular display mechanisms allows for a personal ordering and hierarchical emplacement.
The content of this ordering and processing has recently become more emotive; investigating inter-human relationships and personal losses.
It was a surprise to win the Sidney Nolan Trust residency. It gives me a fantastic opportunity to focus on my practical work. It will be an invaluable and inspirational experience.
