Artist’s statement

Literature connects us with the ideas and insights of the greatest minds that ever were. It is the medium by which great teachers can relay information learnt from nature, the entire planet and all of history, to inspire us to make our own contribution to the world. In my work I have used books as the primary material, giving new meaning to a medium that has seen a fall from prominence in the wake of the digital age.
