"I have been working with moving image with the addition of text and sound, looking at themes of biography and autobiography and the intersect between the two. Movement is a key factor within my practice, an abstraction of fluid forms which reflect an interest in the human condition. Intrigue with performers, in particular the dancer Vaslav Nijinsky, has developed an interest in the undying commitment to their art despite the suffering it sometimes entails. This silent piece of film was extracted from 'Insects and Parrots' - a work in progress...  for my second year MA show at KARST Gallery, Plymouth."
