My practice involves the creation of both abstract and representational works that play with ideas of preciousness and value. Continue reading My background and previous work
I’m very excited to begin this Synapse residency, generously supported by the Australian Network for Arts and Technology (ANAT). This residency is a collaboration between myself and Prof Ted Maddess at the department of Neuroscience at the John Curtin School of Medical Research. The project is titled Abstract Digital: Exploring the Art and Science of Visual Perception. Continue reading It begins!
