Early Works

In this series of paint skin sculptures, familiar domestic objects and scenes from the workplace have been collapsed to offer a comic re-evaluation of world around us. The deflated works have been created by painting over everyday objects with many layers of acrylic and then peeling the paint off to leave soft hollow paint skin chrysalises’. The works are flexible and fatigue into their own comfortable equilibriums. Conceptually the works open up an interesting dialogue between absence and presence, as the paint skin partially holds the form of the previous object, but at the same time encases a void of where the object once was.
