Through an amalgamation of found and created materials, the work develops as a sculptural response to the everyday forces that shape our sense of the ‘individual’. An investigation of industrial materials and craft techniques realises a visually powerful dynamic in which the artist explores ideas and experiences of working-class masculinity.
With subtlety, the work takes issue with the adopted roles that we easily accept and assume, allowing the viewer to unpick these perceptions
