About the work
I use images as effects, the choice of which is dependent upon the statement I am making.
There are turn ons and turn offs; the viewer is seduced on one level, but the medium is cold and surface.
The images lure the viewer, but deny the pleasure of the texture of the handmade, the quality of the 'real'.
A minimalist type language is appropriated for expressing psychological conditions and states that feature in the work as a subtext; feelings of denial, detachment, loss, banality, complacency, opposition and contradiction.
The witty element is increasingly essential and takes the form of irony or parody.
