I often call myself
a ‘public artist’ as virtually all the work I create is
shown within some form of public space. The work I make is generally
site-specific, in that it is created specifically (both physically and
conceptually) for the place in which it is shown. Sites have included
shopping centers, churches, buses, beaches, websites, billboards and
in one case a TV program.
My work is primarily
a method for exploring issues and ideas. I sometimes work alone but more frequently I make work with other people, individuals
and groups, most of whom have very different opinions and life
experiences to mine. Generally the only clear point of connection between
us is the subject of the work.
The work starts
as a process - a large conversation - and becomes concrete through a
shared desire to extend this conversation to include a wider audience.
