Description

I am a figurative artist that mainly produces 2-dimensional objects such as paintings, drawings, photographs and prints. I aim to create artworks that carry a narrative thread loose enough to free the visual imagination from the restraints of reason. In the spirit of magical-realist fiction, the storytelling explores the indefinite space between reality and fiction, horror and humour, fantasy and fact. Vaudevillian characters inhabit a play without beginning or end, where carnival and folk traditions are pastiched together into simulacrum and spectacle. As with Angela Carter's novels, the carnivalesque elements of transgression and excess “allow illusion to work and the improbable to become possible.”(Bowers, 2004, p.71)
