Please check out my blog for current work and to see what inspires me…

Current-  “Clusterfuck Asthetics” (a manic depressive panic attack in the face of information overload). Jerry Saltz. I intend to strip back current affairs by dissecting the hypocrisy of those in power questioning ideas of taboo and shame. I propose that we no longer know where we stand in a modern complex society because our natural urges are suppressed, perverted and altered beyond the realms of natural, into something confused and confusing (unnatural) working around the ideas of Anthropologist Mary Douglas ‘Purity and Danger’ I want to remove shame and dirt the things that marginalize us. I want to explore a world without the constraints of consumerism, Religion, I intend to make work that breaks down the barrier of shame to analyse and dissect attachment theory as away to create work that questions and provokes debate…
