Much work that I cant share. The commission I'm undertaking is by far the biggest I've ever done, with the most restrictive contract I've ever signed. So I cant share progress pics but let me assure you, I'm artworking long and many days

The exhibition title refers to the works themselves, which are an interpretation of Perl’s inner landscape; a private space inhabited by her thoughts, dreams, memories and emotions. As a series, the works explore universal themes such as loss, grief, faith, nostalgia and beauty.
1830 x 901mm. Loved working at this scale after all the teeny pieces I've been making for so long. With them my thinking has been that its an already crowded world and theres a helluva lot of art out there, it doesn't need more taking up valuable space
New work. "The body mask; a sculpturally elegant, totemic, vessel-like form. Speaking of the masks that define and protect us. Viewers engage with the work, creating meaning, through their own associations and memories." True or false? You be the judge...
Femida H. She is my close and very dear friend and I made this portrait for her 50th birthday present. We met as neighbours in London (hello, NW3) and she is an incredibly kind & loyal friend, and a gracious & generous woman. I hope I've done something nice for her here.
