Profile

My work acknowledges elements of ‘Peacocking’ and Display or more accurately - Visual Merchandising (VM) - the notion of ‘enhancement’, ‘animating’ and ‘transforming’ objects or (branded) products including the discarded and the unloved.

VM is a tool of commercialism, employed by artists such as Johns and Rauschenberg in their early lives, then revisited within their artistic practice.

I explore the methodologies – both formal and psychological – of display and presentation, borrowing from the languages of the museum, advertising, interior design and retail.

Consumerism excites and disgusts me - both fuelling my work - questioning and critiquing, but more importantly - it let’s me create mischief and mayhem… 

I used to collaborate with John Cake, as The Little Artists from 1999 - 2013. Our work is in public and private collections.
