Content disposition explores the way people live and what they value. I was inspired by a trip to South Africa, where I experienced a vibrant community spirit and pride in the shanty towns which often cover miles of the country’s landscape. Despite having very little, people took much pride in their humble dwellings and meagre possessions. Through trial and error in sculpting, collaging, dry brushing and assemblage, I sought to express the raw beauty in these landscapes, and the contentment in the simplicity of life.
