My artistic practice encompasses various mediums such as film, photography, and performance. By blending genres within photography, I aim to spark conversations about contemporary issues in modern society. My work is deeply rooted in my identity as a British artist of Gambian ancestry, focusing on the experiences of the African diaspora and exploring existential questions that arise from such a way of being in the world. These themes inform my research into culture and generational realities.
My creative process involves expressing ideas and emotions through art, utilising film as a means to capture unconscious thoughts in one place. My intuitive and emotional response to my surroundings, inner world, and global affairs drives my artistic production. While my early works primarily consisted of mixed media and documentary photography, my time at the Royal College of Art has expanded my practice into incorporating materials and objects into installations, taking a more conceptual route.
In my recent works, I have focused on the intricacies of human nature, particularly exploring the existence of the human form and its connection with the masses in modern society. Drawing from my background in performance, I view the world as a platform for play and connection, emphasising visual dynamics and using performance to tell stories and exhibit the body in relation to space.
I view my work as an incentive to provoke and disrupt the underlying issues present in society. By combining different mediums and approaches, I strive to create art that challenges perceptions and fosters meaningful dialogue on contemporary topics.
