Ashe's art practice is conceptually based and deeply rooted in exploring the politics of belongingness and the human condition. He creates works that are both poetic and evocative, delving into the emotional intricacies of the human experience and exploring the complexities and nuances of identity, belonging, and marginalisation. Ashe is focused is on extending his installation practice into new forms of expression and territories, by fusing live static performative gestures and the ready-made with various mediums such as photography, sculpture, text, and video. This approach allows him to create dynamic and multi-layered works that engage the viewer on numerous levels, both visually and conceptually. Ashe’s practice questions our broken social systems and reflects on the ongoing search for a sense of belonging in contemporary society, highlighting the vulnerability that comes with it.

Copy writing and/or creating content can be overwhelming and frustrating. It's time consuming.
You have to come up with content that will reach, connect, and engage people and deliver value, while at the same time supporting your goals.
Ideally, you would think that you and/or your team are the best people to craft your content because…
– you know your clients and who your target market is
– you know all the benefits your products or services offer
– you know your stuff – in fact you're AWESOME at what you do
Getting all your knowledge out of your head into a strategic content plan and then creating that content is hard. Especially when you and your team have other things to focus on.
This is where I come in.
It’s my job to pull all that information out of your head AND to work with you to craft content for you, so that it delivers value AND supports your goals.
