About The Artwork

I am currently working on stop motion animation 'Heirlooms'. 'Heirlooms' is about a group of children who are haunted by the ghost of Peg Prowler. Peg Prowler is a faceless ghost, with a bonnet for a head. This is a story board for a scene where Justin sees Peg Prowler for the first time. Justin is stirred by something during the night. He wakes up and looks out of his bedroom window. Outside Peg Prowler is stood there waiting for him. Peg Prowler stares up at Justin. Justin runs back to bed and hides under the covers... The drawing was created with pen on old paper, which I use because I like the aged effect it creates.

I create sculpture, animation, installations, drawings and sound pieces. For inspiration I look to: Susie Templeton, Kara Walker, Yuri Norstein, Hew Locke, Susan Hiller, Ruth Ringgold, Tove Jansson and Willard Wigan. I'm currently creating a stop motion animation 'Heirlooms', which is about a group of children who are haunted by the faceless ghost of Peg Prowler. The voyeuristic aspect of my work may stem from a childhood wish to gain access to restricted spaces (such as a hidden room in a dollhouse). My work involves the frustration of being prevented from fulfilling wishes, by only allowing glimpses of these inaccessible worlds. By creating intricate, small worlds I am suggesting the desire to retreat from something threatening like society. Yet I am also interested in the contradictions and conflict this inspires; it appears that by reducing the world to a small and repetitious environment you create a sense of safety, but perhaps all you are doing is internalising the initial threat. Images such as rats eating from dining room tables not only evoke feelings of disgust but of childish play. I am perhaps attempting to control fragile memories and perceptions of childhood built on cardboard foundations. The structures I create are deliberately unsecure, unsound, in order to summon up an atmosphere of unease, this is a fragile world that could topple down at any moment. Cardboard is also interesting to work with, as it is often viewed as a 'poor' material, only salvaged by the dispossessed.
