"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"My work is strongly visual. I’m not a conceptual artist who is only interested in the idea. It’s really rooted in the visual. That’s where I get excited. But I have a great need for structure in a conceptual thread- perhaps throughout the works in a project- almost like a matrix more than a structure. Things build on one another in an installation. There’s a basic matrix that they fit within and it’s not something I draw up. It’s a schema- another word might be ‘theme'."
