This body of work was born out of a deepest urge to set myself free from restraining conventions and delving into a personal journey of empowering self- discovery. 

With strong graphic iconic images, saturated, confronting. Initially using human prosthesis and then contrasting hard aggressive man made materials with soft sensual nature. 

Juxtaposing paradoxical elements to create tension, the work’s complex layers intentionally attract and seduce whilst repelling the viewer’s gaze. 

By abstracting the everyday I investigate the illusions of reality and the reality of illusions.

SEDUCE [ORIGIN] body of work is shot in-camera on transparency film and on colour negative film, with an analogue medium format camera.
