A carnal inversion of the industrial process, positioning flesh as the matrix of production rather than its operator. A visual representation of surplus labour.
My practice is a study of the body, the fleshy substance that defines and describes us. Working across different media I examine the relationship between the body, consumer society and identity, both internally, and how we construct and project a sense of self into social spaces, both real and virtual. Collaging flesh with industrial objects, I create somewhat disturbing, yet humorous images, which question the boundary between Self and Other; asking to what extent we define our identity through objects we possess. My work exposes as hollow the claim that increased consumer-choice equals increased freedom, and that through acquiring material possessions we can achieve happiness.
