Work overview

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. - Aristotle

I am a young student in their second year of study on a Visual Arts course at the University of Salford. I am eager, enthusiastic and always extremely excited to learn. Learning and experimentation is a key element within my current practice; as i am still exploring what kinds of art set my clock ticking, so to speak. The two major themes that have ran through my personal practice within the past few years are as followed: Political angst and a deep, passionate, love of colour. My current line of creation is exploring psychedelia, and use of intense colour as a means of illustrating another reality to those who can't see it. I pride myself on my self-belief and gut instinct, i think that if something feels right to me, then i should run with it (its got me this far after all). I pride myself even more however on my ability to take constructive criticism, and listen to the advice of those who are more experienced than i am.
