Cream Supreme (detail)

2009, Bronze, paint and plywood, 190 x 95 x 65 cms

Currently my work is concerned with still life as sculpture and the mimicry of domestic ornaments. The use of foodstuff, plant matter and gloss paint is intended to engender everyday objects and materials, imbuing them with a subtle sexual charge. I like to try and refer to feelings of desire, lust, hunger and repulsion. The aim is to create seductive compositions with dark and sinister undertones.
