Rejectamenta –things or matter rejected as worthless or useless.
Trash from the street, old photographs, rusting metal, natural and found objects: anything that catches my eye can end up playing a part in creating my worlds, often becoming the catalysts for my mixed media artworks.
I like to create narratives with my work, whether exploring the darker side of folk and fairy tales or my own subconscious.
My art is also a means of therapy, allowing me to confront my mental illness and express my thoughts and ideas in a constructive way. I am mostly self-taught, having found the academic approach to art to be counter-intuitive to my own ideas and methods.
Recently, I have begun exploring themes of identity, mortality, dreams, and my own memories and mental health. I hope to encourage dialogues and discussion about these subjects through my art.
Rejectamental –casting off the labels of society and embracing an alternative ideology.
