Profile

Having grown up and spent most of my life in the Caribbean, my practice is concerned with the interrogation of cultural characteristics that are indigenous to my place of birth, and that continue to be of interest to me. Relocating to England I became interested in the interconnected history of the two countries that I have lived in, and the on-going effects of those historical connections. My interests lie in articulating these issues, and the complex matters that arise with the transference of culture.

My interrogations have allowed me to access areas such as displacement, identity, capitalism and ethics, home, ideologies, modernism and globalisation. I explore these issues through a variety of media. Of particular interest to me is the vernacular architecture of the Caribbean and the language that these structures express. Using primarily found objects I create interesting and stimulating installations for curatorial scrutiny which begin to question the historical and contemporary relevance of these issues.
