These colourful X-rays are a new and still evolving body of work. The x-rays are printed on opaque plastic sheets and mounted on old hospital light-boards. I like to work with human tools like x-rays, maps, cutlery or bottles and re-interpret the meanings embedded in their forms. Humans are very serious creatures and we have developed many tools to assist our lives. I use colour, organic lines and forms to entice people into a dialogue that is not always as simple as it first appears. And, although the natural organic lines and forms of anatomy are lyrical and soothing, they also speak to our human fragility. There is lyricism in these colourful images that runs contrary to the underlying information. The balanced colour planes beg for surrender much like the x-rays demand us to surrender to our bones and circumstances.

Venue & Connection Information

I need electrical outlets available for each lightboard. These light-boards give off a fair amount of light. The boards would benefit from a darker space with not much ambient lighting. They are easy to hang. Although, they would benefit from being hung on studs because these lightboards are old and heavy, made of steel.

  • Special Lighting needed: No
  • Internet needed: No
