The physicality of a colourless bearded, compressed & truncated male image spreads the discarded seed shells directly at the viewer while the colourful crawlers’ cascade down his grey visage.

“What interests me is the ongoing reformulation of a set of key interests. These interests are drawn from my observations of Western society’s less-considered compulsions. Exploring the performance of gender, specifically masculinity, the valorization of labour, the pursuit of leisure, and the marshalling of amity. I explore language and paralanguage, that is, both the spoken and gestural aspects of human communication”.
