Artist's Statement

My work centres on issues relating to aspects of South African society, ranging from one-liner piss-takes of the art scene to more sombre investigations of wayward masculinity and violence. Formally my idiom is often eclectic but falls within a neo-conceptual framework with an emphasis on craft and materiality.
