STATEMENT

My works dissect urban spaces. From these spaces I select objects – kerbs, road signs, discarded rubbish, transmuting them into abstract forms. I am fascinated in the dichotomies as well as the corporeal connections between these objects and high Modernist architectural design. Concrete and steel can be both utopian and startlingly bleak. Appropriating the early graphic designs of the Bauhaus school, and placing them in stark contrast to these urban forms, my work explores the contradictions.
