Statement

Interested in the human perception of objects, my work focuses on the juxtaposing yet comparable visceral reactions of disgust and sexual attraction. Our interaction with what we perceive to be either grotesque or sensual are seemingly conflicting, however the magnetism of these opposing artefacts reveal many parallels. The duality of the abstracted shapes allows them to reside within a place where they cannot be named as the objects we understand. They may look slightly like entrails but not quite or resemble sexual forms but not exclusively. It is within this ‘grey area’ that the objects are left to sit.
