ILLUMINATING DARKNESS 
Dissected Dreamscapes of a Lunartic

I am human, a lost poet, a mystic, existing wild and strange, with breath, blood, bones and a name, I gather memories and thoughts; alive in this time I call mine and beyond my physical reality is the surreal unconscious of my internal world; the vast depths of a wild spirit contained in this body I call me but with all beginnings must come an end and one day all that I’ve collected will pass with me.

Dissecting my physical reality in the silence of my dreamscape, I form an erotic theater of the flesh that explores and connects with what lies beneath the surface and in the sweet beauty of darkness, void of time; I illuminate my existence and explore the mysterious magic of the unknown.

OPENING NIGHT: PIECES OF ME


On the 26th of September down a backstreet of Surry Hills, guests followed a candlelit path to a courtyard filled with moonlight, a bar and above it all in the darkness of twisted trees and starry night sky, a compilation of strange imagery of myself - projected larger than life on the jagged building. Inside the studio, white walls, white floor, sexy big mirrors and sleek lighting, the perfect blank canvas and an ideal space to present my latest series 'PIECES OF ME' 8 mixed media self portraits.

Leonard Mattis has created an amazing space, an exclusive salon and a venue that inspires.

Leonard commissioned me to fill his main wall in the salon (3300 x 2280) giving me complete creative freedom I decided to use an image of myself, caught by accident when shooting the images for my series... I printed the photograph out on Museum Quality Archival Paper (the biggest print I'd ever seen) and 3 of us stuck it to the wall (no easy feat), then I created it's bones and the mask out of the same paper using watercolor, graphite, ink, gouache... far from your ordinary wallpaper... a giant, gutsy image like no other.

That's what I most admire about Lenoard his desire to support creativity and his courage to take risks in the name of art. Not once did he question where I was going with the gigantic picture of myself covered in hair... he allowed me that rare and beautiful gift of letting my hair down to be myself and create freely.

Once the wall was complete I began work on the rest of the characters and everything started to come together for the show... it's not the easiest task putting on your own exhibition, managing everything from the art to the alcohol and the cleanup, that being said I am super proud of how it all came together and now it's all over I'm looking forward to beginning work on my next series.

I am always wonderfully surprised by amazing people that band together to support me!
