Symbols are often ambiguous and contradictory. This idea has influenced my recent works; several symbolic meanings may be depicted as a result of different aspects being stressed in different works. As well as the obvious meaning, a symbol can represent ?something other than itself?, a material object used to represent an unseen concept.
This exhibition engages with existential issues; it addresses feelings of doubt when confronting the unknown and all of the compromises to do with the cycle of living. It?s about what it means to be in an uncertain world with thoughts, feelings, and desires as a vulnerable and sometimes fragile being. The work is ambiguous and sometimes mysterious and just as life is uncertain, so too is the predicament in these three dimensional situations. The protagonist in these works is not revealed ? they remain anonymous and could be a universal model of humanity. The simplified forms are intended to be vessels that the viewer can fill with their own meanings and memories.
