An artist with a diverse background cultivating a multimedia and interdisciplinary creative practice in London and beyond.
Image-making is the cornerstone of the practice from exploring black-and-white photography to studying video art at university and later working as a multimedia producer. The works continue to evolve with a variety of methods and materials that emerge organically from research and development driven by conceptual necessities. Recent projects have included photographs, videos, texts, digital graphics, prints, and custom-made objects.
Multiplicity is natural in the approach shaped by a peripatetic upbringing in the Philippines and England, itinerant work around the UK and Europe, and crossovers into mass media and fine art. Like many people navigating across cultures and communities, I have found myself between places and spaces in various contexts, witnessing different ways of seeing and being from the edges of overlapping lines.
Along the way I was drawn to the manifestations of these conditions through found marks and chance encounters, becoming a thread in some works as I began to record and (re)consider residual artefacts from our attempts to exist and communicate in this era. It reflects a broader aim to excavate traces of narratives and perspectives from the periphery and palimpsest of contemporary society, typically processed with recurring strategies including documentary, accumulation, intervention, appropriation, abstraction, and de/reconstruction.
You can see examples of these attempts in Selected Works. Other projects are also progressing in earnest and I welcome opportunities to show, collaborate, and/or experiment with ongoing enquiries.
