Recent and upcoming exhibitions include WOOLFF Gallery, London, Jerwood Drawing Prize 2017 Exhibition, EMPIRE II @ Castello, Venice Italy 2017, Gallery 46 Whitechapel, London, 2016, Folkestone Fringe Triennial 2014, Performance Space, London, 2013 and ‘Again and Again and Again: Serial Formats and Repetitive Actions’ Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada, 2012. 


My practice explores movement and the role of the body in drawing. It addresses how duration, expenditure of energy and imposed restrictions on the body can contribute to a greater awareness of what it means to draw. Approaching the body as a tool, I embrace the idea that the artist is not only physically present in the act of drawing but also brings an experience to the work that exceeds the object of art (be it through the body in live performance, video or sound recording, or photograph). 

Following the trajectory of art practices that consider drawing and performance a conceptual, temporal and liminal process for negotiation or change; I consider drawing to be a cognitive process, an act of thinking through the body, and seek ways to test and explore physical limits. My research proposes that drawing is not only connected to movement but can be located in a larger inquiry into the performative nature of human activity.
