BIO

I am a Cape Town based artist interested in ink-wash painting and alternative photography. After matriculating from Overberg High, I qualified with a Btech degree in Interior design and a diploma in Fine Art from Ruth Prowse School of Art in 2015.

The focus of my work is on the ephemeral concept of Time: a transient moment is captured on the paper or lense surface, where ink and various translucent fluids are intermixed. The results of these reactions are then digitally captured, recording the movement of the pigmented molecules breaking up, each with its own distinct character. My work questions photography by capturing images that can never be created again, while exploring process and repetition as meditative instruments in art making.
