From the day of all conception
Clay foetus and pelvis

From the residency Blessed are the cracks (2009)

The day when birth meets death.


And so, in the words of Hirst,: “Art is the salt that the artist rubs into the wound”. I am the artist and you are my open wound in which I have to confront such common convictions. The artistic visions for 25 Stratford Grove pay respect to the Vanitas masters of the 17th Century; using still-life as their milieu to explore themes of transience, the ephemeral nature of beauty and the fragility of human life. This is a home like no other; populated with sentimental objects, nic nacs and memorabilia that lay bare the humans’ desire to hoard all that is and all that has been. The mortality of such matter cannot be denied. Hence, I intervene to create a visual meditation on life’s final destination.

My sincere love and respect goes to Carole for her warm welcome and support throughout the residency. A rare and admirable breed of woman whose heart stretches to embrace each and every one of us.
