A medical slant underlies my work and is often influenced from my time occupied as a paramedic. This involuntarily stimulates intrigue toward the human body, to people. Not only anatomy, physiology, disease, injury and medicine, but the emotive aspect – people’s response and behaviour, testimonies of human frailty and durability.
Endeavouring to reproduce this emotive response within an artwork. Not as a direct replication but in attempt to stimulate another’s empathy. The inclusion of symbols: objects, words and imagery act as references to relating literature, to art, history, mythology and science. An attempt to make an art work that arrests on a visual level and communicates from the gut and with the intellect.
