I create common spectacles that become extra-ordinarily normal through the re-use of materials and processes that are relentlessly contrary and sentimentally sinister.
Over the past 20 years the central issues of my work have been the body and flesh, materials, architecture, the human condition and lately flora and fauna. I have displaced these concerns from their sources and projected them onto objects and environments, transforming the audiences' perception of the familiar and expected.
My recent work has been involved with issues of flesh and the natural world. “Flesh" or nude toned objects, found and fabricated, are gathered together to create a climate that artificially simulates our own skin and is incorporated with images from taxidermy and wildlife. The emphasis on imitation is integrated to reinforce the obsession we have towards the real and authentic when the notion of reality is always in question.
