    "I create meticulously crafted sculptural scenes immersed in large dark tanks of purified water. The introduction of water in this way serves its purpose both symbolically and as the functional device through which I achieve the painterly effect of these works. For the most part I destroy these creations, leaving behind only these images as documentary evidence of these events ever having taken place.

    I work without the use of post production; either traditional or digital, and this dedication to in-camera purity establishes a predominant focal point for my practice.

    For me the quality of the work and the purity of the process is paramount, distilling elements out with the strong use of deep blacks; conveying rich layers of meaning in what at first appear deceptively simple images. Black is boundless in its pure potential and always forms my canvas.

    I want to cross out the boundaries between sculpture, painting and photography; the more obscured they are, the more you will want to explore.
     
    Distil Ennui;  def…
    to extract the essence and beauty of life to appease world weariness.”
