‘Look into yellow, feel immersed in colour, anchored when close.

The plane of the wall intersecting through my bodily matter to secure,

tether me to site.’

My practice involves site-specific activation of interstitial spaces to reveal and engage with personal and shared histories of site. The connection between liminal space and early abstract theories of form, colour and variable rhythms are explored to better understand spatial perceptions in reconfigured contexts.

Furthering my interest in geometric abstraction, colour theory and the dynamism of urban spaces, I explore the intersection between line (as a point in motion) and artistic intervention as an extension of architectural space to uncover forgotten narratives.

I was fortunate to have been given the opportunity to develop my practice during a semester exchange at Parsons School of Design in New York City in early 2023. Working in expanded painting practices that include sculpture, photography and performance, the colour yellow continues to inspire and guide my explorations.
