“My works express the little ironies that exist between decision and endeavour, where we have trouble differentiating between what we want and what we are told we should want. They are a visual exploration of the liminal space we often retreat into when in a state of indecision
Drawing upon the fear and uncertainty that we deal with in the face of success, feelings of displacement are emphasized by creating characters using Chinese fortune symbology which either try to help or end up proving to be the problem in the first place."
