"…a sideways glance at popular and celebrity culture with a postmodern slant…"

My work is about readymades: working with everyday found objects and placing them in new contexts giving them alter egos. Je t'aime moi non plus: a pair of regulation kidney dishes are transformed into erotic trays, or, as the chanson translates, "…you come and you go between my kidneys…"

Underpinning the pithy wit is a concern with things as useful, if disconcerting, objects. They also relate to junctures in my life narrative…so enter Jackie, Miss Haversham, Darren Day etc.
