My work explores the relationship between multiculturalism and midlife subcultures. With influences as diverse as Munch and Andy Warhol, new insights are created from both opaque and transparent structures. Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of the mind. What starts out as triumph soon becomes corroded into a hegemony of distress, leaving only a sense of what could have been and the inevitability of a new order. As wavering phenomena become frozen through frantic and critical practice, the viewer is left with a hymn to the limits of our future.
