“Eight glazed ceramic pieces on the wall, each one made up of hundreds of squeezed clay fingerprints. “We Only Print in Blood Red” has the appearance of a rash or invasion, referencing our invasive mark on the world. The glaze is a blood red, angry and loud, a closer look reveals traces of each finger print, the human body, etched in the clay.

A Proposition” hangs in the window, a new piece of work from my deconstructed mens’ business suit series. A section of a pair of suit trousers, the waistband and pockets, is carefully cut away, isolated from the garment and wired to hold its form, suggesting a presence of the body. A cascade of individually attached red ceramic fingerprints flows downwards, onto the floor.”
