I am an artist and recent curator.
My research and practical work are beginning to focus on the formation and expression of personal, religious and cultural identities. I have begun to exhibit and comment on the work that I generate in the form of blogs and publications.
'Focus on Identity' is my first curatorial project, which I am hoping to link to my academic work and grant applications, if successful.
My ultimate aim would be to produce a more cohesive body of practical and written work which focuses on the way we map our past and immediate experiences in the works that we generate. My most recent attempt has been 'Personal Maps' a book of limited edition works around the themes of Sense of Place and Identity.
I am interested in how artists acquire, process and disseminate their cultural inheritance. I would like to understand what forces, overt and covert cultural norms and symbols affect artists; and in what ways we form, retain and ‘curate’ inherited histories within our art practices.
