My recent work draws on a variety of formative interests – biology, art history, literature and philosophy – and is often uncanny and fantastic.
In the series ‘Unnatural Selections’ I have been creating taxidermy hybrids, seamlessly blending different animals into surreal chimera. Unusual juxtapositions – herbivore and carnivore, mammal and bird, amphibian and insect – give rise to creatures both playful and horrific, wondrous and terrifying.
Some of the sculptures can be read as pure fantasy, mythological creatures from ancient worlds, and others as scientific possibilities, spliced animals from a dystopian future in which inter-species manipulation has gone terribly wrong.
I graduated from Goldsmiths University with a first class honours degree in Fine Art in 2001.
I have been represented by the Red Propeller Gallery for a number of years.
