installation, collage, drawing and mixed media: box art, found and made object assemblages and cabinets: personal practice and commissions.

My interest in medical and natural history museum display and taxonomy has recently tied in with experiments which are concerned with the use of collage and assemblage to explore both the methodology of display and a kind of auto-ethnography. I am currently involved in a body of work which explores several themes concerned with identity and consciousness. The use of the box as an allegory of the head – a container not just for objects but ideas, memories, and narratives of the self – emerges from the historical 'wunderkammer' or curiosity cabinet, that excites wonder, imagination, and desire for knowledge.
