‘I Am Bear’ 

Abstracted walking Bear.

This abstracted Bear is the first in my series of animated abstracted animals. Each animal is chosen for the innate symbolic language it carries. Within some indigenous cultures it is believed the spirit of animals speaks to a universal symbology of inherent characteristics. I explore identity through the qualities innate to the animal I’ve chosen to represent. The Bear symbolises strength, family bonds and protection.

‘I Am Agony, I Am Ecstasy’

Two sides of a male face, sad & happy.

These works grapple with concepts around human nature.

It is in our nature to experience emotion. The human emotional experience is broad and complex and encompasses a vast range of feelings from the most negative, disconnected of feelings to the most positive, and all manner of complexity in between. My medal shows the face of a man, the left side of which is expressing great agony, and the right side expresses great Joy! When the face is seen as a whole it speaks to some emotion in between. At any given point in our lives we are in a state of emotion, anywhere from Agony to Ecstasy! 

The medal work ‘I Am Agony, I Am Ecstasy’ will be exhibited in the FIDEM International Congress, Florence, Italy in October 2023.
