Hand-cut collage - 2018
The concept of ‘toxic masculinity’ refers to cultural masculine norms that are considered harmful to society- i.e. dominance, self-reliance and competition.
There is a move towards dismantling these masculine norms, especially in the socialisation of young boys. If this process is taken too far, the results will likely be disastrous. For, not only are these masculine norms responsible for the physical infrastructure of the modern world, as well as its protection, they also happen to be (if the popularity of ‘50 Shades’ is anything to go by) the most sexually attractive traits in men.
Originally from New Zealand, I now live on the Isle of Man.
My collages primarily concern the human condition, with reference to psychology, religion, philosophy, history, pop-culture and more.
My paintings are primarily abstract and explore the beauty of color and form and my love of intricate detail.
