My Adopted Family
My Adopted Family

A new conceptual project, comprising of three strands. The first is a catalogue of my family where my collection of objects have become an extension of me, literally and metaphorically.

 I really like working in a series. Perhaps because it can be as big or small as you wish, or possibly that you don’t quite know what direction it may take you in.

 My home is filled with objects collected over time, they have become my family. So this is how this new project came about - the desire to formalise their existence. Catalogue my adopted family in such a way that included myself. A set of family portraits.

My portfolio focuses on the complex dynamics and non-verbal communication found in personal relationships.

The Factory

On a quiet back street scant yards from the bustle and noise of London life sits a disused factory,

The Factory
The Factory

As I walked through the factory doors, I entered a world of silence. I am surrounded by hundreds of mannequins, trapped in claustrophobic and overcrowded confinement.

The Factory
The Factory

As I weave my way through the dark rooms crammed with endless bodies, I feel a tension in the air: many are contorted and dismembered,

The Factory
The Factory

some are intertwined, gazing at each other some with mute desire, while others silently gesticulate. Many are bruised and scarred. All have been discarded.

The Factory
The Factory

With each visit to the factory, it seems to me, they are not simply a congregation of discarded mannequins but a powerful representation of the complex dynamics and non-verbal communication found in personal relationships.

The Factory
The Factory

A mere glance, our use of space or a simple gesture can be as freighted with meaning as a love letter.

The Factory

With each visit to the factory, I began to reflect on how these mannequins embody something deeply personal to me - the breakdown of a relationship.

The Factory

The dissolution of communication,

The Factory
The Factory

the loss of identity,

The Factory
The Factory

over-powering control,

The Factory
The Factory

and claustrophobia

The Factory

manifest themselves in the deterioration of a personal relationship.

This body of work is my reflection on the metaphoric content of my discoveries in the factory.
