EclectoMania series on vintage paper

drawing comes in a cut mount 60 x 80 cm 

During the early 1900s, the aesthetics of traditional African sculpture became a powerful influence among European artists who formed an avant-garde in the development of modern art.

While these artists knew very little of the original meaning and function of the African and other primitive sculptures they encountered, they instantly recognised spiritual and compositional qualities that acted as a key, allowing them to go beyond the naturalism that had defined Western art since the Renaissance.

In 1907, Picasso experienced a “revelation” while viewing African art at the ethnographic museum in Paris, the Palais du Trocadéro. This encounter impacted his work for the rest of his life. He was not the only artist influenced by African and Oceanic art – Modigliani, Matisse, Gauguin, Klee, Basquiat, Bacon, Leger and many others fell under its spell.

 

The tide of influence moves in both directions.

While European artists revelled in the discovery of primitive art, colonisation took with it ideas and artefacts, and in return filled the vacuum left behind with its own ideologies and consumeristic influences. Globalisation has resulted in universally known icons and brands.

I'm drawn to challenging assumed hierarchies, and find inspiration as much on the street and in cartoons as I do from looking back at the history of painting. This collaged way of working reflects more accurately my experience of the world. After studying sculpture, I worked briefly as a free-lance toy designer. I use art making as a form of research and as a vehicle to explore subjects I would not necessarily immerse myself in otherwise. It's a personal dialogue and a wider one with the public through the art work. At the same time, the process of painting is also a way of quietening my mind and occupying a space that is undivided and unitive. I also draw from the vitality and power of tribal art, often merging notions of the sacred with the banal objects of pop culture. I like to compress these apparently opposing elements into works of meaning and humour; and by colliding these disparate worlds, I question my perceived values and prejudices. I've recently exhibited in the UK, Tahiti, France, Germany and Switzerland.
