Interdisciplinary Art Media and Design

“My artistic praxis references and engages with simple images, using collage and collage aesthetics. The simple images encourage us to rethink and reflect on the role of imagination, opening up new possibilities for imagined futures. In my current series of collage-based work, I aim to explore how fragmented worlds of a reconstructed past may question our notions of time and reshape our thinking of the future. ”
