His practice explores equine, human, canine and other animal structures; a reference to themes of vassalage and the tools used in the subjugation of one group by another. 

 

He moves effortlessly between a number of mediums; to include wood, steel, photography and video, to create a narrative that is visceral and tangible. The practice is further extended into public installations referencing those notions of subjugation and conflict using location choice as a decoding component.
