Video installation with film editor Rachel Dowel at VAMA in Victorian Vaults, London.
Exploring the role of advertising and the media and the ways in which technology has distorted our perception and expectation of reality.
'Family Values' comprises of drawings and paintings that consider the genre of magical realism. To create pieces that immerse the audience in a narrative that is as ridiculous as it is familiar.

Using the image of an idyllic family as a metaphor; to challenge society’s expectations by fusing fantasy with the familiar, question everyday domesticity and distort perceived reality and memory. To reveal societies perception of normality and the idyllic as a façade; both unattainable and fantastical as well as nearing on the grotesque and lonely.

‘Then the substanceless blue,
Pour of tor and distances.’
Sylvia Plath

Taking inspiration from Yves Klien's blue paintings and Whistler's nocturne in Black and Gold, this painting is not so much a seascape, as was its initial catalyst, as much as it is a Gothic obsession with blue and black. Indeed, if the action of painting this were filmed it would consist of the artist leaping from one side of the canvas to the other, throwing paint and powder to sculpt a notion of infinity. In this vein it may be considered as the only documentation of the painter's performance... a private dance.
