About Me

My work has developed a lot over the 3 years I've studied for my degree. It has evolved into a body of work that deals with the human form as an environment. I've mapped and explored my own body inside and out in many ways through print, drawing and various media as a type of research to address self identity

Where have you been Scot

Major update.

I havent blogged for four weeks...mainly since a good portion of that was spent doing nothing over easter....However the past 10 days my creative juices have literally been turned on like some teenage hormone charged orgasm...

The large tapestry i was working on had been stressing me out for some time. I had considered starting a whole new piece of work, creating it into a tent, cutting it up again into speaerate images, even binning it...However I was looking back through my sketchbook, through some old ideas and remebered I had once envisoned it being a tailor made suit. To put it bluntly this is what it has become.

The suit represents a layer or skin ...the surface of me. The bit that your worry about the most. The bit you always want to change. The stitched portraits of myself are delciate and have bits of torn paper and textures, representing the fragile human condition. I think the suit could lead to a really interesting video installation of me wearing it and even taking it off to shed the layer and let go of my insecurities.

yes. I'm getting deep with this shit.

Edit: new and improved pictures of my suit...

Welcome to my blog! :)

This page is primarily a documentation of my art work I create. I'm a BA Fine Art, Mixed Media Student currently in my final year of my degree.

My work deals with ideas of the fragility of the human condition and often consists of images of my own body. I tend to work with materials that reflect the delicacy of the human form such as stitch and fabrics. My drawing style i like to describe as a "nervous" line, which also ties in with the themes of all my work.
