I quite enjoy using mythology, fairytales, various social ideologies etc as a narrative vehicle in my works. “
Art is personal; each individual has an ability to reflect (on society) that is unique to themselves. As artists, our creative output feeds on our personal experiences and environments. The artistic expression or creative sphere that we create out of that is unique to the individual and cannot be replicated by another. Through the act of consumption – by this I mean a person coming into contact with an artist’s creative sphere, as in a painting – we encourage reflection on society when people confront a cultural object that invites a search for personal understanding.
