  • Close your eyes and listen to a Shirley Bassey song... I desire for sculpture to perform in this way. 

    I am interested in ideas of excess, theatricality and the body. Exploring the idea of the contemporary Rococo, I replicate the exquisite moments found everywhere from the Gorgon’s mouth in Pierre Puget’s marble to the lyrics of Shirley Bassey. There is a want to get to the centre of something, to pare things down to the key moment, the climax.
