Work in prog
face 2 face
Hard to believe it’s been a year without you. There’s hardly a day that passes that I don’t think about you, how I wish you were here, how much I wish I could come home and see you for some quality mimi time. I’ve yet to meet a single person on this earth that shares your same magic. Your humor and smile are unparalleled, and I charish every single memory of your laugh, your little songs, your warm hugs and especially how welcome and heard you always made me feel. I love every long chat, every joke, camping trip, dance party, cooking project, craft project, night in. I loved watching you light up any and every room, the joy you brought to every friend and stranger /soon to be friend you ever met, young and old. I love the way you loved me, my family and yours. The way you brought people together. The perfect link. If only I could have given you everything that you gave all of us. I hope that you have found peace, I wish I could have found it for you. Thank you for everyday that you gave us, each one a precious gift. I miss you mimi. I love you forever and always.

I am thrilled to announce a group show that I will be in with some truly fantastic artists. “Layover” will be taking place at @versusartproject in Istanbul October 18th - November 24th with an opening reception the night of the 18th. “Layover explores artistic responses to duality across five countries: Turkey, New Zealand, England, America and The UAE. The show features the works of Rosa Allison, Sarah Alagroobi, Emma Fineman, Vanya Horwath, and Çağla Ulusoy. Each artist, coming from diverse cultural backgrounds, has found commonality within their use of material. Painting is their means of describing a duality of cultural influence to express a universality within this visual language. An approach of accepting the unexpected, embracing the unpredictable and utilizing dualities, reflects their response to the uncertainties of our geopolitical climate. This strategy provides a means of an honest personal expression within an increasingly polarised society. The choice of exhibition site, Versus Art Project in Istanbul Turkey, is significant when considering notions of cultural duality, being that it is situated between Europe and Asia. Within the exhibition, each artist will occupy spaces on the walls of Versus Art Project together, as a unified collective, but also that occupation is a territorial space that inhabits the presence of people from multiple backgrounds. In this way the walls become a safe space to not only coexist, but also to share dialogue with each other. Each artist presents work that follows a similar conceptual thread, all rooted in cultural nuances and nomadic displacement of identity, diaspora, nationalism, and heritage. Through these roots each artist branches their own trajectories touching on correlations that unite their practice and process. These processes range from oil painting on canvas to digital fabrication and sculptural construction.”
