ABOUT
I am focussed especially upon the failures of human systems of understanding, and the often destructive and misguided behaviours to which these systems give rise. In exploring the limits and deficiencies of human endeavour and knowledge, I find solace in moments of black comedy, and ultimately seek a path towards the self-effacing dignity of Socratic ignorance.

My intellectual approaches are informed by my interests in mathematics, the natural sciences, and philosophy. My professional history within commercialised “creative practices” such as photography and graphic design often influences the formal qualities of my work.

It is my intention to maintain a mode of practice that, to the fullest extent possible:
- acknowledges its agency and complicity within the manifold systems that produce it; and
- operates with integrity, responsibility and purpose both in relation to those systems, and within itself.
