Blue Rhapsody investigates the life of an object outside of its initial intent and purpose and explore emotional associations with our immediate environment. Animals and humans are interchangeable and serve as cultural objects to project a narrative of surreal reality; a super reality.
Focusing on the micro the work draws our attention to the small details and draws us into a personal silence and space. This microcosmos, at times humorous and bizarre, attempts to make sense of our rapidly changing surroundings, environment and our place within these spaces (settings/backdrops). Drawing inspiration from 18th century European porcelain, the work fuses the traditional with the ultra-modern and utilises traditional techniques that are rapidly being lost through modernisation.
