The preservation of ideological images of blokes and gals in times
that some might have hoped to have be lost is paramount to this
work. Thank god, there are still pockets of reality in our world
I believe and I explore these. Torn between the love hate relationships
we have to battle with everyday in society I like to communicate
what people are normally afraid to. There is nothing quite like
letting loose with your wildest desires.
real and imaginary personalities (seen through my dolls and trucking
drivers) have been threatened almost to extinction, partly by their
own doing, and what they haven't done we are happy to help with
along in life, my girls seem happy but will they be so, once they
are bowled over by their buddies?
a note, New Zealand artist Judy Darragh is an idol of mine. This
work was partly inspired by one of Judy's works, “Visible Woman”
1988. Judy used to be called the Queen of Kitsch, but has since
relinquished the title.
