Dysfunctional relations between identity and behaviour are portrayed in my collection of digital/organic hybrids, emphasising the struggle facing the masked ‘monster’: the psychopath. A featureless abstract of an actual person, the psychopath dons a series of guises masking their abundantly absent conscience.
My current exhibition work is motivated by concealed identity, directing attention to the complex mass of fabrication, which exists below the surface. Lacking the manacles of integrity which bind the bulk of humanity, the psychopath is forced to imitate and mimic, impersonating a viable version of a being acceptable to society.
The materials I use in my work echo the subject matter; the reflective surface of the vinyl prints characterise the incessant conflict between good and bad, in an individual deprived of remorse and a genuine moral compass.
Previous works include visual interpretations of the fragile perception of physical-self, in a world obsessed with youth and beauty.
