Tutor, MA Fine Art (online)

I completed an MA in Fine Art at St. Martins School of Art in 2002 and since then, I have been exhibiting my work in London and across the UK. In addition to my current role as Tutor on the MA Fine Art (online) course at Falmouth University, I have experience of teaching on BA and MA Fine Art courses at other institutions including UCA Farnham, UAL and currently at University of Suffolk. 

Since 2019, I have been involved in doctoral study as a practice-based PhD researcher at Chelsea College of Art. The working title for my project is: Display and visual coding in fine art practice: reconstituting the synthetic tracksuit as an expression of cultural hybridity. I am interested in how the synthetic tracksuit from the late 80s to early 90s enabled individuals of different nationalities and ethnicities to group together under a collective ‘banner’ within subcultures of hip hop, casual and rave. The research uses this as a basis to explore the relationship between style and the visual coding of cultural identities as something that belongs to the future as well as the past. The key question of my PhD is: How can the synthetic tracksuit as a piece of material culture, be translated through art practice as an expression of cultural hybridity in the increasingly polarising rhetoric of nationalism? 

Recent projects have employed processes of montage to develop responses through wall drawing; performance and print-media. As part of this research, I have recently co-edited a print publication titled Cha with artist and researcher Remi Rana Allen at Chelsea, UAL.
