"My art practice is self-referential, fractal; in that, I am always sourcing my own work, employing fugue-like iterations on themes- using past images/forms and manipulating them into new entities. The process is always about “play”. I am a mold-maker and a lover of bricolage - I meticulously plan the sculptures and find deep joy in that process. The work is linked to the materials that a given object/subject matter requires. I’m drawn to the odd: sideshows, altarpieces, monstrosities, relics, carnivals, cabinets of curiosities - the arcane and the bizarre quasi-religious rituals of society."
