It takes a village to raise a child but eventually the child transgresses beyond the village’s bounds. The buildings and streets in my body of work represent the environment, with the scaffolding motifs exploring the integral role of my home town in my construction. I was inspired by Hundertwasser’s subversion of geometric forms, seeing in them the feeling of alienation that my work is intended to express. The work is a combination of slab and coil construction with the scaffolding being a delicate process of bandages and nails. I used many techniques and mediums, primarily acrylic, spray paint and collage.
