My art concerns itself with issues surrounding identity, masculinity and placement; considering the constraints awarded to black and brown men, but also recognising and celebrating our potential and achievement.
I draw reference from memory and personal experiences; but also from systems and attitudes (both historic and present day) that play into the reductive process of othering.
The artwork, which takes the form of analogue/digital collage and book art, is created using archive and found images, typography, wallpaper, textiles and paint.
