Liminal -   Aotea Gallery  (solo show)

These works investigate concepts of transition and attempts to reclaim images as transcendent or magical. Totems in a post-enlightenment world. This may be read conceptually as well as literally; a transition between the past and an indeterminable new. At the same time, they recognise the inability to reclaim or understand them as such. Overall, the theme is hope and failure and hope again (with some absurdity thrown in for good measure).
