The ever expanding Installation ‘Anubis Other World Tour’ has been visiting art galleries, caves and other interesting venues scaring, delighting and perplexing in equal measure since 1997.
‘Lost Not Found:Abscission’, an ongoing public interaction project, was stared in 2009 and featured in last years Edinburgh Art Festival with the next planned installation in Australia next spring. A new ongoing project ‘Chapmans Monkey’ is currently in development.
Much of the Artists work embodies a dark undertone with a counterbalancing wry humour. The sculpture and figures harbour an almost supernatural prescence perceivable upon an encounter with one or a grouping at an exhibition. Some viewers believe the figure about to move and many are startled to see 'bodies' being loaded into a van or car. This is part of the artwork experience and runs alongside public interaction at the heart of the Artists practice.
