'Transient' is a series of paintings and drawings fuelled by an intrigue in the illusion of time, power of consciousness and the exploration of interpretations affect on shaping and tinting realities, as a projection of ourself in our current moment rather than from the perspective of who we used to be.
The works document fleeting moments of interactions with friends, strangers, and the self; Each image is an exploration of the artists' intertwining of internal and external perceptions. Diving into the division between the realms of memory, and the experiences that resonate within us.
Taking how materials age over time into consideration and playing with perspective, the works produced are transient - they distort, fade, and transform. This component of the investigation further narrows in on the duality that develops through our recollection of experience, over time, the works will never quite look the way they're remembered.

'Soulscapes' Series (2016-Present)
This series of work ‘Soulscapes’ stemmed from a fascination with connection, the gaze, and it’s impact in relation to cognitive processing and emotional bonding is implemented, through an investigation of bridging intrinsic connections by dissolving the physical container [the body/flesh pod].
Focusing predominantly on the duality that develops from relationships and interactions, the works are an exploration of the multifaceted adventure that is the human experience, manifested through the deconstruction of the portrait.
By extracting the essence of a being from its’ vessel, the objective being to eliminate all contexts of the subject such as race, gender and facial expression exposes raw intimacy and connection.
