The work I create refers to processes of enculturation: daily situations, decisions and dilemmas one encounters as a consequence.
My parents of Asian origin grew up in East Africa, forced to exile Uganda in 1973 they relocated in England when I was three years of age. Since 1998, I have chosen to settle and live in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The experience of dislocation, displacement and the act of being forcefully uprooted has left a strong impression. With this comes a knowledge and understanding of a rich breath of cultures, languages and life styles. This has had a significant impact and informs the work I produce.
My ideas work across the disciplines from 2-D to 3-D and are linked by reoccurring images and through the subject matter. Images of household objects, anatomy drawings and maps are used to explore relationships between ones roots and history, bringing the visual dialogue to the present day.
I would like to invite you to experience this visual journey through my work and share any comments you may have.
