These figures, whether human, animal, or combined may appear to have an inner world, either ancient or contemporary. These wall works might evoke thoughts of ancient worlds or otherworldly creatures. Similar to dreams, they are a composite of the dualities of life, evoking a place between the conscious and subconscious, the familiar and the imaginary, the truths and untruths. Using metaphors and puns from everyday life helps to give them their character. They can conjure up engaging pleasures or unpleasant fears.
I am drawn to the strange fantasies of Hieronymus Bosch, called a medieval surrealist and with parallels to Salvador Dali.
I continue to explore expressions, variations and distortions in the surface treatments of my figurative sculptures.
