'For me, the making of art is a time and space for reflection and a means to communicate with an audience in a language of symbols.

Symbolic representation has had a strong influence in my life due to many years of living in the Melanesian culture of PNG where tribal symbolism in life and art is a driving social factor.

This early influence on my artistic practice has been reinforced through working in the spatial information industry. Maps are a landscape or terrain created by the use of symbols – these symbols allow us to tell stories about the spaces we inhabit and the journeys we undertake.

I am an advocate for the discovery of art in our everyday spaces and objects and hence a supporter “art in public spaces” as well as the use and re-interpretation of common objects as a creative method and conversation with others.' - Milos
