Artist Statement:

These latest series of works reveal a sliding and shifting aesthetics of cultural values and icons through a visual juxtapositioning of elements to create intrigue shifting from discarded wooden off cuts and ice-cream wrappers to highly prized collectable classic cars. These dislocated images – ice-cream wrapper, Ford Falcon GTHO , Optimus Prime, Beautiful girls, electrical power point, detritus and driftwood – combine to create a form of pastiche which seeks to highlight the tensions and connections between seemingly disparate cultural, historical visual objects and ideas.
