Psychoanalytic theory, childrens literature and the femme fatale all coexist within my work. Influences as diverse as Freuds theories of the uncanny, stories that inhabit a liminal space, and the dance-like movements of Olive Oyl in a Popeye cartoon do battle within the pieces. My practice, which began as part-object drawings of arms, legs and mouths, has evolved into installations incorporating animation, projection and sculpture.
The installations reflect, for me, the duality of being human. There is a side we know and consciously project, and there is a side thats hidden or pushed down. Im very interested in that hidden side: the urges and desires we dont necessarily act on, but that are there none the less.
