About The Artwork

I created a cardboard house which featured cardboard furniture, hand drawn wallpaper and soft furnishings. These drawings were based on art deco designs. The house lacks doors and the interiors can only been viewed by peering in through small windows. Rats were released into the house. Their activity was filmed and the footage was then displayed next to the house. This implied that the rats were still present.

Shipping & Returns

Delivery Time:Typically 5-7 business days for domestic shipments, 10-14 business days for international shipments.

I create sculpture, installations, animation, film, drawings and sound pieces. For inspiration I look to: Susie Templeton, Caroline Leaf, Yuri Norstein, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Susan Hiller, Louise Bourgeois and Tove Jansson. 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 insecure, 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.
