Exploring the real and the referential, parallels of light and consciousness underpin my conceptual framework – embodying Vedic philosophy, quantum thinking and various multidimensional subjects with metaphysical and imaginative implications.

I am interested in the effect that light has on our psychology and spatial perception, with its inherent ability to influence the eye and mind of the viewer – and in using it as the means to contemplate space through the ephemeral nature of installations, where light adds an illusory dimension.

Linking elements from drawing, sculpture, installation and light-based media, my practice is an ongoing enquiry into concepts of the ‘unknown’ and the illusion of time (ourselves) flowing from the past towards the future as a subjective experience of consciousness.
