“It is often said that power corrupts. As an artist, I cannot attest to the truth of such a lofty notion, however the visual and human languages of power and authority influence my own work. Power – be it political, physical, financial, religious or societal – seems to require the receivers thereof to adjust their behaviour in some way. Whether power can, in itself, corrupt may be a difficult discussion. However, it certainly has the ability to change the person or people in question – this I find fascinating. The process of seeking, gaining and ultimately retaining power is well established in our society – and typically comes with familiar markers. This provides rich source material for my work.”
