Inside Out - Representations of the self
Inside Out represents a path of self-criticism, where I have lain bare a fragility and resilience for all to see, seeking to challenge the traditional Academic establishment’s hierarchy of art principles and aesthetics of portrait sculpture.
Using the traditional skills of realistic portrait sculpture as a point of departure, I use a process of making, destroying and repairing as a metaphorical journey of trauma and healing - the scars of life – a way of trying to make sense of what it is to be human, a way of trying to make sense of who I am.
