Kingston University

Chelsea, Surrey Institute then Kingston. Currently I consider my work to be an instant response. I wish it to have that ?real?, ?now? feeling. It is about self ? expression, examination and release in relation to the environment, people and experiences I come in contact with. It is a mix of the comical, extreme, emotional and intriguing. The running theme between the different sections of work I have created could be seen as edgy, looking for a bit of excitement and danger. The work is modern, honest and confrontational.It is observations of people, myself, adventures I have been on and a little touch of the imagination. Photographic portraiture is of great interest to me, as well as architecture, illustration and the slightly ?shabby?. Rather weary of working on paper and in sketchbooks I find it very refreshing having found a way of working on bed sheets with biros, charcoal and paint alongside the camera with my un-pristine photography as I intend it to be.

Work of art I would like to make

Inspiration stems from my current part time job in a retail environment from which I wish to depict the ever increasing consumer society we live in. In twenty five years time it is likely to become even more extreme and manic. If chosen I would take a slightly comical stance looking at the work environment both on the shop floor and in the hidden workers areas. Concentrating on the interaction with the customers and what goes on behind the scenes with the staff. I would create this work through illustration and photography. It would be both modern and futuristic.
