Never let them make you feel like a Clown

Never let them make you feel like a Clown, Mixed media, video, 90cm x 55cm x 50cm, 2008

We've all had humiliating experiences with customer service whether it be in person or on the phone. I always end up wanting to throw myself or someone else off a bridge. This piece is my homage to the experience.

Kenny just might be Illuminated...

Kenny just might be Illuminated, Mixed media, 56cm x 24cm x 7cm, 2008
A small piece that I improvised a bit with. These later pieces where I am incorporating more found objects and so on are a great opportunity for me to let my imagination run wild. Normally I see an image and it changes very little in the realization, with these works the piece realized in steel becomes the canvas as opposed to the finished piece.

Max at his father's table

Max at his Father's Table, Steel, glass carafe, 193cm x 145cm x 4cm, 2008

This is a piece that I had been wanting to do for awhile. Initially i had wanted three figures but in the end stayed with one. The subject is a friend Max Zinnecker at what he considers "The only piece of furniture that has any value to me that I own...". It's a table that was his father's when he was a student.
