About —

My projects are produced on unceded Kulin Nations Country where I work and live.

I work within the mediums of video, audio, Super 8 film, photography, live and recorded performance.
 
My practice examines various representational strategies, each one linked by an interest in the body and its agency within the everyday. Recurrent themes include humour and tension between received cultural values, individual agency and free will.

I am represented by Sutton Gallery in Melbourne.

This video was made for 'Six moments in Kingston', a large scale public art project commissioned by David Cross and Cameron Bishop. I was asked to make an artwork that responded to an infamous local incident from 1980, in which Essendon footballer Phil Carmen headbutt boundary umpire Graham Carbery at the Moorabbin football oval. The headbutt was highly controversial and led to a trial in the Supreme Court. Carmen was suspended for 20 matches. 'Head case in point' was screened at the St Kilda Football Club as part of a bus tour that visited site and context specific artworks by Tal Fitzpatrick, Spiros Panigirakis, Steven Rhall, Field Theory, Shane McGrath and myself in the City of Kingston.
