Ply Gallery - 'Faces of India'

Solo Exhibition 27/04/17-02/05/17

Faces of India is predominantly a collection of portraits. I aimed to encapsulate the subtle emotions of the subjects and their unique characters, while allowing the audience to experience the colours, vibrancy and energy of India.

 

Following a year of independent travel, India captured my imagination and inspired me to create a body of work to reflect my experiences. Before travelling through the country, I volunteered with children in the slums of Rajasthan for 7 weeks - an intense, eye-opening and challenging experience. Understanding the culture and traditions of the individuals brought me closer to my subjects.

Affordable Art Fair - 'Bernard'

Battersea Park, 2013

Graduates Exhibition 24-27 October 2013

Following my degree show at Brighton University, I was fortunate enough for Bernard the camel to be featured at the forefront of the Affordable Art Fair. Bernard is a life size camel made predominantly from found and recycled materials; from faux fur and curtain tassels to banisters and ping pong balls.
