Statement

Morbid Curiosity leads my practice. I am interested in exploring the untimely deaths of high-profile celebrities, principally those that belong to the ‘27 Club’; the unofficial name given to a group of celebrities who died at the age of 27.

I work solely from imagery gathered in response to the written descriptions of the crime scenes, examining imagined spaces and dark narratives. These fragmented descriptions are echoed in the form that I use, with the resulting work discovered through a process of collaging and appearing to float from the wall.
