The artist’s recent work has revolved round these two conflicting subjects; Every Heartbeat Counts Every Word Matters looks to consider the ease in which we accept the trivialisation / normalisation of abusive words and the outpouring banal noises that overwhelm. The artist asks / demands of us to search for the submerged words - not just to hear but to listen.
