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.

A good man driven to the edge.
The image of the women linked by flimsy thought bubbles is ironic, the white woman is providing us with her thoughts. She herself, is prejudiced against because of her gender, but sits, pre occupied, not recognizing it.Her thoughts are the most shallow and ill informed which is again ironic, based on the idea that a woman is incapable of having intelligent, creative thoughts, instead focusing on the material, laying at her feet. Which are of course, de beers blood diamonds.
I tend to use the layout of this simple collage either to develop stronger, more detailed work or it leads in to painting or drawing.
