My practice explores the notion of the seen and the unseen through the pillars of the self and the ego. The simplicity of my work is representative of the fragility and intangible nature of one’s self. Aided by psychologists and philosophers’ theories (Belk, Freud and Rorschach), my work has come to envelop and praise the beauty and simplicity of the mediums of paper and card emphasising the success and impact of the delivery of message using only one material. I am concerned with trace; both in the physical and mental sense, which is particularly represented in my Rorschach laser cut series (based on independent psychological interpretations of inkblot tests). My pop-out typography series represents a theory by the philosopher Rusell W. Belk, which suggests the extension and material establishment of ones self through a collection of belongings. This explains the decision to present my work in several pieces.
