My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.

Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.

Spray Can Sprayed With Its Own Contents
220mm x 80mm x 80mm (boxed)
Spray paint, can, Polaroid photograph
Edition of 18 numbered copies, each unique
Published in 2016 by Nothing Else Press

The entire contents of a can of spray paint is emptied into the oncoming air stream of a desktop fan. The paint exits the aerosol and is redirected back towards itself, evenly covering the canister in the paint it previously held, rendering it an icon of itself. Each are unique, with the edition size determined by the availability of colours from a common brand of spray paint.
