Ralph is a 30-year-old artist and writer based in Essex and London. His current practice and research combines printmaking, moving image and reflective writing. He attempts to create and interrogate transformations, mergers and in-between states of the image evoking remembered films, passed places and the instability of memory. Ralph exhibits regularly in London and the South East while studying part-time for a Professional Doctorate in Fine Art at the University of East London and working part-time as a printmaking technician at Havering College of Further and Higher Education.

How do you keep the balance in life?

Every week I train and teach karate, I play football, I go skateboarding, I make a print, I watch a film,

I read or study something that interests me and I write in reflection.  It is in these weird and wonderful

combinations that I find balance
