Artist’s statement

My work is an observation of my journey to school and the repetitious habits of the commuter community. By ranging across techniques, materials and focal point I explore the personal and geographic elements of the trip. The beauty of the trip inspired me as well as the distant but familiar people I have often shared a seat with over the past six years. The 22 panels document the 22 minutes of my bus trip and emphasise the highlights that occur on a bus ride that may at first seem mundane.

Influencing artists: Joseph Cornell, Jim Dine, Lucian Freud, The Contextual Villains, Annette Messager, Marlene Dumas
