About me

I specialise in plaster sculpture and alginate as well as clay casting of faces. My work has been shown at the Northern Regional College Foundation exhibition in Ballymena and in ‘?’ exhibition in Hanover Building at UCLan, Preston. The faces I create are always distorted as they represent the side of my personality which I never reveal to anyone. People assume that I am always happy and cheerful, but this is not always the case. I cast my distorted face into unperfect forms, wonky and chipped or broken as it refers to the fact that no human is perfect, and we all have our imperfections. The artists I have often referred my work to are Thomas Schutte, Johnson Tsang and Adrien Miller as they create similar work to mine.

‘’Emotional Rohde’’ comprises seven bowls, eight vases and twenty-seven flawed vessels. These numerous vessels are made from the mould of my deliberately distorted face. The vases and bowls are made in the same size as household utensils. The only thing that distinguishes my dishes, apart from the faces included in them, is the shape of them as I made them wonky looking. The alginate facemasks themselves are flat or curved up in the actual face shape.
