I work within the mediums of sewn sculptures, text and diagrammatic painting. My practice is stimulated by her writings on materialising the positive aspects of a parasite, in favour for catalysing social change; similarly in the style of the Frankfurt School .The colour pallet is recognisably a very close selection of browns, oranges, aubergines and yellows. Working against the pejorative perception of parasite-host relationships, I coined the term Socio-Parasitology. My focus is on the interruptive stage and the first act of contact made between a parasite and host coupling; as an activity which releases a productive change. My work Cluttered (2010) was exhibited at Saatchi Gallery for “Imagine a World Without Prejudice” curated by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). I have curated The Socio-Parasitology Manifesto Exhibition, supported and funded by Shades of Noir, in January 2019 at Nunnery Gallery, Bow Arts Trust.
