Black As Night

An experimental piece I made for a prompt on Pop My Mind a while ago – a demon lady painted with nail polish and white eyeliner!

Leviathan

A response on Pop My Mind to Olivers Portrait of Eternal Loneliness.

I was inspired by the snake-like shape of the original image, and the idea of the Leviathan, a great serpent-like monster that encircles the world. A great unknowable creature lurking in the dark.

From A Stone

 

A response on Pop My Mind to the Let’s Talk theme around mental health and it’s connections to art.

Most of the stresses and anxieties I have can be linked back to my hands. Being prone to RSI causes a lot of pain that feeds into fears of not being able to make work, or of never being able to make enough.  And it’s easy to feel betrayed by your own hands – why won’t they make better work? why can’t they work faster? why aren’t they good enough?

So you push yourself all the time, and if you don’t take a step back to breathe now and again, getting anything else creative out of yourself is like getting blood from a stone.

Disintegration

A response on Pop My Mind, for the Fragmentation theme. This one is a self-portrait, exploring the divide, bleed and crossover of artist and artwork, and the blurry edges where you end and your work begins.

A fun experiment, with a gratuitous application of black face paint.

Noveau Divine

We are beyond the new rich now, the world is home to the new divine, with wealth enough to make themselves gods.

A response on Pop My Mind the theme of Opulence. One of the largest pieces I have ever made, and appropriately enough, is inspiring me to continue to work bigger and grander.

Bodies in Chaos

Dance is a chaos of bodies in motion.

A response on Pop My Mind to Double Bill, a dance piece. This piece was part of Pop My Minds Motion exhibition at the Whistler Gallery.
