I am an artist, researcher and lecturer. My artist’s practice is (usually) as half of the collaboration Barbaresi & Round. Our work is about places and buildings and works with painting, wall drawing, constructions, artist’s books, and participatory practice.
Currently I am in the final year of a practice based PhD at UCA Canterbury. The research approaches Architecture as a Fine Artist, looking at the life of buildings after the architect has walked away, linking physical interventions and adaptions in buildings to ideas around social space. I am using the working title, ‘satellite dishes are wonderful!’ – a quote from the German Architect Johannes Uhl when reflecting on his 70’s development Neue Kreuzberger Zentrum in the present.
Education has an important role to play in my practice, connecting with the participatory and collaborative nature of my work. I teach on BA Painting at Wimbledon College of Art and on the CCW (Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon) Foundation course.
