Utilising imagery from Greek and Egyptian art — restoring white marble sculptures with the colours they once wore. This conflict with our modern sensibility for clean, white, classical sculptures raises questions regarding taste and the kitsch. Whilst toying with museological display these new works directly explore the relationship between objecthood, decoration and the illusory nature of painting. From object to staged photograph to painting — they serve as a record of constant metamorphoses: in scale, dimension, and in cultural value.
I am using common representations of these archetypal forms to reflect and restore some kind of mystique a kin to the original.
