Kids


As of yet unnamed, Click on image to see larger

This is a new series that I'm working on involving children and stuffed animals, dolls and other objects of importance. With this in mind I want to investigate not only the open, relaxed nature of the children but bring attention to the bond sometimes formed with their toys and or everyday objects. In these cases it's only a suggestion as the objects were added later after the models were photographed. The dolls will be made by a variety of people and provides me a chance to incorporate other artists work with my own. Also I continue to mix two dimensional and three dimensional objects as well as color and black and white. For me the contrast gives the pieces a vitality. Keep your eyes here for more in this series...

Baby Jesus Welder



Baby Jesus Welder, Steel, 63cm x 100cm, 2008

I have always loved religious iconography and have had this version of a Raphael painting that I did sometime ago lying around. Thought it might be a good way to start the new year.
