* Keloid is variously used to describe both an unsightly scar from the healing of a wound and a sign of initiation or significant life event.
This project examines the traces of early colonial history in the identity of the artist and the impact of that history as it unfolds today. Keloid is a long term project that involves a large body of work developed over many years. It looks at the role of the coloniser and the impact of colonisation on the colonised from the perspective of a descendant of a settler/colonial family.
Exhibitions of work from this project are in the six stages below
