MA Project Work: Presence of Absence

My non-linear and semi-autobiographical works examine the processes we use for communicating, manipulating and reading visual messages. In this series of British and Indian imagery, the frame and grid provide a structure that facilitates a dialogue between inside/ outside and a tension between what is known, assumed and thought.
