I am...
..an artist based in West Yorkshire, UK. A also curates collaboratively and am co-founding director of Fundada Artists' Film Festival, founding director of the Museum of Contemporary Rubbish, co-curator in residence at Westgate Studios and founding director of the University of Incidental Knowledge.
About my artwork
I work with a wide range of media and processes involving the manipulation of mundane objects and materials. Mass-produced, anonymous objects are often rendered dysfunctional caricatures of themselves, blurring distinctions between the absurd and the mundane. I create or accentuate subtleties and address concepts of purpose and futility with the notion that the environment the work exists in becomes integral to the work itself.
