CERAMICS

My work and exhibitions to date have been largely thematic. In recent years, I have found myself using elements of biology, gender and sex as inspiration. My 2011 exhibition at the jamjar, Dubai, used a fusion of two mediums, ceramics and painting, in order to introduce to the Art world of Dubai a more public discussion of sex. The holistic approach to my exhibition was seen from the number of individual ceramic blocks, 69, to the images on them. These ceramic blocks were at once dissimilar, due to the nature of their images, and similar, due to the use of ceramics. Equally, they were highly sexual, yet retained a boundary of propriety apt for their social context, due to the discreet nature of their images. Thus, the creation of this work meant that I was using and simultaneously reacting against my social context.
