QUEEN ST. ART ACTIVATION
Queen St Campbelltown
Koshigaya memory lane, with family, friends and the sister city
I was inspired when researching the history and culture of Campbelltown by the sister city connection it has with Koshigaya.
I was thinking of family I have over in Japan and imagining them running around the streets enjoying one of the various festivals that are run around the town's city centre with the cherry blossoms symbolizing Koshigaya.
The characters that sprawl out on to the street from the window remind me of all the ways in which the Koshigaya park and the various public spaces in Campbelltown are used; from exercising, to picnicking to peacefully basking in the sun.

WEIGHT OF LOVE
Weight of Love weaves reality, fantasy and paranoia into traditional notions of romance.
Reminiscent of film stills, the vignettes create a story arc exploring the fetishization of misconstrued feelings of entitlement, dependency and jealousy.
The scale of the work perpetuates a sense of grandeur and drama, though ultimately the works capture my unlearning and reclaiming of the nuance in love and intimacy.
Composing Life / Silent Giants
TWO CITIES is an accumulation work created as part of a Berlin residency I completed last year, plus a progression of my work since arriving back in Sydney. The Berlin project 'Composing Life' was an exercise in storytelling and became a map of intersecting narratives. Formed from the idea that through storytelling we experience empathy, nuances arose from the bias created by retelling a narrative from a perspective that is not your own.
Returning to Australia with lingering thoughts on the theme of empathy, my latest works Silent Giants takes a more critical look at empathy. 'Silent Giants' is a project that considers subtler forms of bias, discomfort, or oppression that we may justify for our own benefit or convenience.
