Artist's Statement

 

                                                                                                                                                       

 

My work has developed from the chaos within my dreams. It is an expression of my own inner feelings of fear, paranoia, humour and confusion. The sculptures created are based on very quick automatic drawings and sketches. I try to keep that energy within the finished piece. The work produced is a conscious interpretation of my subconscious.

I often combine fun and the fantastic to create sculptures with a darkly surreal edge. This can display a strong sci-fi aesthetic or at least hint at a dystopian future.

I experiment with different materials ranging from metal, resin, wood, plaster, man-made and natural found objects or anything I might find in a junk-shop or skip. This process of experimentation allows my ideas to develop taking me on numerous journeys before deciding on a finished piece.
