briefly about

Self, 2013

This website is a portfolio of my work since the late 1990s. I draw, take photographs and write. I used to paint, but I haven’t really felt at home with the idioms of painting for quite a while now; I won’t bore anyone with the reasons. My practice is heterogeneous, and has included studio work, digital work, and curatorship: endeavours that have all informed and influenced one another.

I’ve moved around quite a bit, but now I’ve settled in England.  All the places where I’ve previously lived have shaped and affected who I am, and play a part in my work.

I have taught on and off at universities and art schools in England, Portugal and South Africa; all those details are in my CV as well as information about past exhibitions, writing etc. I do my best to keep this website up to the minute… but don’t really manage to get on top of it.

The page of publications has some links to my published texts in English and Portuguese,  and is a bibliography of others, while the page considerations provides, well, considerations on my practice .

Some photographs are available in numbered editions, giclée (digital) printing, usually on Hahnemuhle Photorag paper (310gms): please contact me via contact form or email.
