EXHIBITION: Supernatual Fears Other Worldly Desires

The fabulous Edwardian Cloakroom/Toilet will be the host of my first exhibition in Bristol.
It's been a looong time coming and I have some new work to show for it. WOAH.

After a large chunk of life being taken over by singing, dancing dead animals spreading enlightenment and comic genius, I hit a shit storm of whirling creative despair. But now i'm bouncing back to doing what I do best- Making some really beautifully scary stuff.
Dead Pretty
Shamefully I haven't made an official piece of sculpture for over 2 years. But after moving away and having no friends, I got my head down. Without all the hassle, noise and constant distractions, objects began talking to me again and I accidentally started making new work. 
It all started with this guy
He was just a lonely skull face, shoved in the corner watching over me for years. . .Then one day he started making noises. He started telling me he wanted a new face... and a crown. 
 Sometimes I hear objects speaking to each other. Sometimes they speak to me. I have visions about what they need, where they belong and who they could be. 
This makes me a cosmic artist- not mad. 

I don't know why he started speaking to me that day but I'm glad he did. He made me remember that creating something out of nothing is what I do best. He told me to bring life to those lying lost and wasting away in dusty boxes and suitcases.  
Standard box of shit no one cares about. 
I decided to just get stuck in, to go where I haven't gone in years, to challenge myself in what I could create with only whats lying around. There are various receptacles in my studio full of incredibly weird stuff.  All dark and broken, containing disgusting things- Which is mostly carcasses in various states of decay.
 Apparently that's what I used to do best. 
Essential maintenance on my dead cat caracas. I find yacht gloss does the trick.
Physically, I’ve been away from the visceral darkness for so long, I didn’t think it was where I was right now. But apparently I was wrong. Things were speaking to me, they were asking me to bring them back to life, asking me to tell a story....
