It is perhaps due to my belonging in the “remix” generation (with its products in pop music), that I tend to borrow and reconfigure ideas and influences to create works that I find both visually and intellectually compelling. I liken part of my artistic practice to “channel surfing,” where I absorb, interpret and bank a great deal of visual information to inform my personal aesthetic. Always interested in refined forms, I draw inspiration from such diverse realms as contemporary pop culture (e.g., plastic toys and Japanese comics), art history (e.g., in the form of Chinese Ming dynasty vessels and 18th century French rococo), and historical and contemporary practices in self-portraiture. Drawing on such rich cultural symbology, I abstract and configure images, forms and colors within a narrative. Humour is an essential communication device in my work; this is an especially effective means of engagement when addressing ‘difficult’ subject areas (e.g., war in Iraq, human-provoked climate change, multinational geo-politics).
