POWERnoid would be the perfect word to describe my life and art practice. A practice that is both all-world consuming but safely located within locality. My practice analyzes the relationship between what we perceive, and what we assume is plausible.
I re-distribute agency to the individual / collective and critique existing power structures, as such my work could be defined especially close to the idea of institutional critique. I trace the roots of these interests to my working class background, which gives me an affinity to society’s underdogs.
With a suspicious mind I have been concerned with the content of history and how it is circulated. I do this by comparing elements such as folk myths and political campaigning to grass-roots activism with the
cannon of art history. I often make the work in response to spatial and social conditions, whilst exploring environmental idealism. I mine history, it is here that I explore an ongoing love affair with movements organised by groups in order to empower individuals.
This work is inspired by the works of William Powhida, Deb Solkow, Charles Avery, Olivia Plender, ect.
