and us.

Oil; black gold of our age. The pinnacle of our caveman abilities to burn objects in order to release power, this material has, whether optionally or forcibly, defined our lives. It oozes into every notion of contemporary life and captures us all. There is no escape from its boundless embrace. This work coats porcelain in a collection of chemicals in order to create a surface of oil. It steals the images of the ‘gallery goers’ and juxtaposes those with the reflected images of my work. Warping the world around it to create complex compositions that comment upon our relation to the material that has defined our age.
