'Folly & Violence' 2007 and 'Chopper' 2007

Currently I am making large scale sculptural installations using various fabrics that question representations of violence, disaster and macho stereotypes. I am particularly interested in playing with boundaries, mixing techniques of art and craft I reference both high and low culture and compose narratives that sit between reality and fantasy. I make work that operates in a space in between disciplines/boundaries, the work is not identifiable as any one thing, be it image or object, craft/fashion or art, furniture or sculpture, high or low, masculine or feminine, functional or dysfunctional.

'Get Rid' 2006
I explore these boundaries as potential spaces of slippage, of accidents, which allow for discoveries beyond confined and referenced fields of art production. The audience will hopefully perceive this ‘state-in-between’ as a challenge to their habits of looking.
While the individual details of the installations I make may reference the latest in avant garde design, the overall impression is that you are being transported by your TV to the latest media disaster: Or is it a film set – Kill Bill meets South Park, The Shining via The Wizard of Oz and then back again through Bowling for Columbine! I am trying to create an aftermath of multiple popular references, which need to be unpicked. Familiarity, confused by representational play recedes leaving a nightmarish playground of soft-edged things to consider.
