Tell us about the work that you have submitted.

The piece submitted is about the fabrication of memory and what happens when memories are revisited.

How do you describe your work and practice?

My painting practice is tied to photography. It is a way of coping with the disappearance of certain analog technologies.

What motivated you to apply to the XL Catlin Art Prize?

I was motivated to apply for the XL Catlin Art Prize simply to have my work seen by a larger audience. I very much did not expect to be selected.

What are you interested in?

I am interested in how stories are passed down from generation to generation and in how we maintain memory.
