About The Artwork

Despite these genitals being clearly in an aroused state, the intention is not to be erotic but to perform a similar function, albeit on a smaller scale, to The Great Wall of Vagina. It neatly sidesteps eroticism, in the same way that the vagina panels are not erotic: the juxtaposition of so many, in a pure white formation, disassociate the sculpture from the body. It’s actually quite comical, all waving about at jaunty angles. The whimsical title is a pun referring to the male ego being inextricable from their dicks and their cars. Men’s insecurities around their genitals are often informed by images from pornography. We didn’t use flaccid penises because it’s the size of their erections that concern men more. Most straight men have never seen another man’s erection in the flesh and tend to be utterly fascinated by this piece. It is human nature to want to know where we fit in. It’s a common response to hear them say – “Ok, now I get what the vagina wall is all about” and “Ah, I feel much better about mine now!” Mission accomplished. This piece was used by the director of the French Film, Tristesse Club, 2014, as the backdrop to a key scene. A similar penis wall appeared in TV show Fleabag in 2016. These casts were made back in 2006 and this sculpture debuted at my first solo show on Cork Street in London in 2012, alongside The Great Wall of Vagina. The huge press generated by that sensational first showing has seen my work become widely influential, with genital castings now all the rage. Mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery! You may also choose to commission penis panels of any size and shape or multiple panel arrays as well. Ask the Saatchi sales team for more information. NB These sculptures are made to order and will ship approximately 2 months after the order is placed, depending on the bespoke frame maker's schedule.

My artworks demonstrate a career-long commitment to experimentation. Often taking the body as inspiration I work with traditional and novel materials using many of my own processes. Not content with simply making beautiful things, there is often a socio-political agenda in my work, a result of my life as an activist as a young man. I am a committed career artist who has been working continually since graduating from art school in 1991. Now working from my studios in Brighton and Florida, I'm obsessively exploring my interest in the human condition. I'm fascinated by the power of emotionally loaded objects and how to lend that power to my artworks. I'm interested in reprographic processes, dovetailing casting and experimental photography into my working practice. I also like to use humour to break down barriers and encourage public engagement with tricky subjects. No subject is too taboo. When I find something that obsesses me I have to pick at that thread until I can tease out what I am trying to say. I'm no stranger to controversy. I am concentrating at the moment of figurative works in bronze, steel, resins and animal hides as well as experimental photographic portraits. I also continue to work on my Objets d'Aft series in which whimsy and nonsense are the driving factors behind these altered found objects. In development as well are a series of large, long outcome assemblage projects that will see fruition in the next few years. My 2012 solo exhibition on Cork Street featured over forty pieces focusing on beauty and society's obsession with the physical self. Here I debuted The Great Wall of Vagina sculpture. It next went on display at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan. I also launched my Physical Photography series of experimental, photographic, portrait collages. These unusual, beautiful portraits focus on personal expressions of sensuality and sexuality within the confines of societal and religious expectations and pressures. Choosing to largely self-represent due to my high public profile, I have clients such as The Royal Family of Liechtenstein, flying me around the world to complete personal or site-specific artworks. What fun! Numerous appearances by me and my work in the press, in books and on TV & radio around the world have done much to boost my public profile, giving me the opportunity to spread my philosophy to a wide audience and engage with the public far from my local area.
