I consider that my found objects demonstrate a commitment to an imaginative and sustained use of sculpture as part of a multi-media fine art practice.

For me the practice of art is an increasingly important element within society's cultural matrix, encompassing both social and political attitudes.

It can be identified through its simultaneous labels such as male, artist, homosexual and British. Like a scientist in his laboratory I dissect and analyse these experiences and my social identities. Using the focused lens of my gay experience I can then create various collages, sculpture, text and prints.


Concepts:
Challenging stereotypical assumptions of gay men.
