Statement

I’ve been accused of being egotistical.  Yes, I.  This is my work.  Yes, we.  This is my work.  Yes, you.  This is my work.  Yes, society.  This is my work.  Repeat.

 

THE ONE CREATING = I

THE ONE VIEWING = I

THE ONE CRITICIZING = I

 

“Every man takes the limits of his own field or vision for their limits of the world”

German Philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer.

Through the form of self portraiture my work focuses on contemporary themes of censorship, consumerism, love, identity and individuality.  My strategy takes a personal approach, interweaving my life with my art, using it to question the conscious and unconscious social structures and pressures that I experience.  The processes that I use are often of a repetitive nature, evolving through action, corroding the very work that I am producing.   I am interested in the doing rather than the done.  Through my approach I do not seek to find definite answers (as I’m unsure as to whether truth exists), rather I wish to personally explore society’s views of freedom, existence and identity, and also the dehumanizing ‘myth’ of individuality.
