Nightmare on Sugar - A new installation



I use my art practice as a means of discovery: To realise wonderful places and harness fleeting memories and sensations. Seductive fusions of landscapes and creatures are made through a sculptural and painting practice that allow for different realities and sensory experiences to unite. In this hyper real world of exploited colour, texture and form I antagonise the boundaries of recognition so as to suggest that identity is fluid and changeable.


Nightmare on Sugar
represents the seductive colours and flavours that are abundant in the candy aisle. It has taken all the calories, all the lard and sugar and waged war upon your healthy conscience ! Dripping with luscious velvet ‘Plush’ sculptures imitate fluffy cake and beg you to give in to your wildest fattening desires. Within this culinary nightmare, all is not what it seems: Strings of Liquorice dangle like a noose and fairy floss threatens to suffocate. This installation is both attractive and unsettling but altogether too good to refuse.

Gastro Porn




On Tuesday the 25th of September the exhibition: Gastro Porn opens at NG Gallery Sydney.

I will be exhibiting a plush installation 'Nightmare on Sugar' that exposes some new sexual twists in contorted black rubber with rivulets of buttery yellow velvet. Additionally, there will be paintings inspired by my recent occupation in fine dining - think bio dynamic eggs, soubise and lavender creme brule turned on their head with acrylic paint and sarcasm.

Visit the gallery online at:

Hope to see you at the opening !
