‘Disgust and Fascination are two sides of the same coin’
Upon hearing this at a lecture on ‘the Grotesque in Archaeology’ at King’s College London in 2015, it struck a chord on something I had been trying to articulate for quite some time. The bliss point between these two impressions was where I found the most interest when it came to people, society and the visual arts. That edge is what drives my interest, and what I strive for in my own practice.
Humans, and how we have interpreted and attempted to communicate our world, is what I make a study of. How we find meaning in everything and nothing. Exploring this through studying different cultures. Looking into their mythology, folklore and god-bases. Seeing how it influences their society, past and present. Highlighting this in a humorous and satirical way through the medium of drawings, sculpture, theatre and mime.
