Qualifications: BA (hons) Fine Art
Artists Statement: My current practice deals with the creation of sacred spaces and the evolution of modern celebrity obsession and consumer worship. Through the creation of multi-media installations combining ready made merchandise, painstakingly constructed altar pieces, oil paintings and racist kitsch I wish to explore the legacy of colonial Britain. The disparateness of the worlds population has created a revolution which manifests itself in subculture and fandom that confirms a sense of identity and belonging.
