All things floppy, flaccid, curved, limp, drooped, drooping, wilting, soft, emasculated, feminine, girly, weak, stereotyped, gendered.
Stereotypes are bullshit, but I like to play with them.
I am interested in recreating this idea of 'emasculation' through soft sculpture, soft flaccid artworks, that imply certain ideas, without doing anything but drooping.
Since graduating from my BA in Fine Art, the truth is I actually have not made much work at all, if any.. Which sucks, it does. But the reality of being back in my small town and living back with my parents and struggling with no money, no studio, no facilities makes being an artist just that bit harder. I don't know what I want to do, or how I am supposed to do to make it work?!? But does anyone know?
However, I HAVE made some work, some collages. So no exciting sculptures but it feels good to make work again, and I like them so that's good.
