The Construct series explores themes surrounding chronic pain, and specifically, the challenges facing women and gender diverse members of the queer community in relation to the dismissal of pain and illness. Playing with construction imagery sourced from photographic ventures around Sydney's ever-evolving inner west, the artist has created a series of repetitive geometric patterns which overlap and intertwine into themselves. 

The Critical Collapse series plays with this imagery, however it is then printed onto rice paper and mounted onto plywood structures. In this way the prints take on a three-dimensional form, slicing through the space. Simultaneously brutal and delicate, the installation is reminiscent of the healing body, and speaks to the deconstruction and reconstruction of the body - both physically and emotionally - post surgical intervention.
