My artwork focuses on contemporary Australian art, specifically the landscape and Australian colonial history, working across a range of discursive practices commenting on cultural and historic perceptions of the landscape. I challenge viewers with an unconventional approach for interpreting the world, by intervening, expanding and re-framing the history of site and place. I create large-scale interdisciplinary artwork in photography, video, sculpture, and installation.
