Statement

I see so much beauty and fascination within the morbidity of death in life, and to be comfortable
with death, one must submerge themselves within it. Skulls are one of natures oldest, purest ‘SKULLptures’
provoking powerful responses of emotion and curiosity to the living whether it be for scientific, artistic or sadomasochistic purposes. ‘Playing with the dead’ tests the balance between what it is to be ‘normal’ in todays society, submitting audiences to a graphic realisation that death happens to everyone/everything and that its just a part of life so enjoy it whilst you can. Pushing limits of myself and the audience is the most gratifying, and through the extremes of shock and disgust also brings with it an intriguing liberation to both.
