About me

 

Adrift in an emotional landscape, mischievous, playful, roguish, I am a sculptor of the anomalous and a dedicated observer of the mysteries of the Cosmos. Out of the peculiar debris of our lives, like a meteorite striking the earth, my sculptures and installations are designed to occupy, converse with, and short-circuit, familiar environments and social behavior. I seek to use unexpected shifts in perceived normality within a given time and space. After being awarded a BA in Fine Art, Sculpture (First Class Honours), I gained an MA in Art and Space (with Distinction) from Kingston University London, under Professor Louis Nixon. I have exhibited in many high profile galleries and undertaken site-specific installation projects and residencies throughout the world. I have been a studio assistant to both, Fiona Banner and Cathy De Monchaux. I was a visiting lecturer in sculpture and architecture, a founder member of Sasprojects, creative director of the Dark Matter Cabaret and Les Cabaratz, Astro Graffiti Show. After undertaking a year long BBK art and science research residency in Berlin and a further three years living and working there, I moved my studio back to London where I am working on a new body of work which will be presented as a solo exhibition in London, summer of 2016. I have a life long interest in physical and philosophical cosmology, with a particular interest in meteorites, notions of physical scale, relativity and location within dimensional space. I take inspiration from nature, the stars in the sky and the mysteries of the universe. My art works are often a humorous response to the world I see around me. Exploration of the mysteries of reality and the endless possibilities of the creative imagination is at the core of my artistic practice.
