Seabastion Toast image

Multidisciplinary artist working across performance, film, sound, painting, drawing, installation, theatrical and literary traditions.

All my work sources material from the everyday and attempts to make sense of the visual bombardment that assaults our senses on a daily basis. I am interested in those captured moments that reveal a poetry behind the first glance or secondary translations across media. In how the image can reveal or create a meta-narrative beyond the banal.
