I am a recently graduated BA Fine art student, this blog is intended to detail the ideas and construction of my studio practice. My work is about exploring the notion of taboo, censorship and obscenity. I recently started using digital manipulation, but primarily work in painting and drawing. My work often uses transgressive themes which contain nudity.If you are under 18 or feel you may be offended by this, please leave the site now. Thank you.

What is the proper way to display the Union jack.
I breifly toyed with the idea of setting up a United Kingdom version of Dredd Scott Tylers work but since we dont hold the flag or patriotism in the same elevated regard as Amercans the peice wouldnt work. An option to use religious texts in some manner was considered but with the religious obscenity laws and fear of direct action i chose not to do it.
Im more intrested in the thoughts behind censorship and ownership of beleifs. land objects than the actual texts anwyay.
Ill post my prospective designs on this topic, as an edit.
