ABOUT ME

Over the past few years, my interest has focused on the neglected sense of olfaction as a means for epistemological inquiry. Traditionally subservient to the ‘higher’ senses of sound and vision, olfaction has generally been ignored in the study of aesthetics. However, a number of artists, scientists, and philosophers are beginning to explore this most mysterious sense.

Memory, sexual attraction, and social interaction are all affected by our sense of smell at both a conscious and unconscious level, my studio practice investigates memory and sexual attraction. One of my objectives is to readdress the hierarchy of the senses and highlight the significant part olfaction has played in our personal histories.

Recently I have been exploring the linguistic gap between language and scent. Of all the senses olfaction lacks its own lexicon; it is a language of metaphor and simile. Two recent exhibitions The Scent of the Jabberwocky and The Garden of Live Flowers were created to draw attention to this conundrum.

My studio practice is a material and metaphorical exploration of the sense of smell. I utilize essential oils, text, video and various other media as a means of delving into this most mysterious sense.
