This marked interruption in continuity

Historically, the partial or fragmented image suggested grief and nostalgia for the loss of a vanished totality and a utopian wholeness.  With this in mind, the development of ideas and the ongoing dialogue of these works have been loosely influenced by the recurrent process called ‘individuation’. In Jungian psychology ‘individuation’ expresses a lifelong process of coming into union with one’s own being – a conscious and also unconscious striving to bring into realization a character which is mysteriously present from the very beginning as a potential embodied in the self.

The process of deconstruction to reconstruction using the technique of collage, where the artwork is made from an assembly of different forms, resulting in the creation of a new whole, is a vital part of the meanings within the work itself and is restorative in its nature. The works function primarily as sites of rupture and dislocation between the internal state and the outer world.
