Photography for me was an initial exciting passion, that turned into a dreaded chore. I've forever craved to make work that doesn't alienate my interest, but utilises a different technique. An exhibition catalogue containing artist Richard Prince's work changed it all, and now all i do is layer, curate and re-appropriate. Humour and Satire are my works basic essences, with elements of social commentary, media responsibility and questions surrounding ethics thrown in. Pictures sourced from publications, other peoples image banks, as well as my own and even the internet all tie together and are presented in a multitude of ways with the intention of entertaining the viewer outside of the context, as opposed to making them overthink. Photography ultimately is no longer my role. I don't picture take, I re-appropriate.
