Civilians is a show of ceramic sculpture. Much of the work depicts figures in various states of conflict with each other or within themselves.
Open Saturdays and Sundays ONLY 11am-5pm.
Part of The Brighton Artists Open Houses Festival 2019
My ceramic work looks at what it means to be a creative man in a diverse and fast evolving culture where masculine roles have changed much faster than the recurrent old scripts that support them. This is my intention but I do not think art can tackle political issues head on, rather my social and political interests form the backdrop to the way I think and make things.
At present most of my work depicts figures. I want to use my sculpture and drawing artworks to explore the rich complexity of being a man in the post-feminist age.
I run The Artists Space, sessions, talks and workshops about the highs and lows of being an artist. Participants can investigate what is good and what is difficult about the role of artist for each of us. See my website for details.
