The Ectoplasm of Self-Delusion addresses many business leaders’ mistaken belief that their success has been the result of just their own capability, ignoring both their advantages and others’ disadvantages.

Spouting hubris akin to Sir Alan Duncan’s recent condemnation of those lacking wealth as low achievers, some seek to augment and immortalise themselves by having their likeness captures in bronze busts.

Revolver 4

Revolver 4 is part of a series of sculptures inspired by the official, continuous profile portrait of Mussolini by Renato Bertelli (1933). It is one of a number of works exploring the politics of power represented by the bust as well as the artist’s fascination with very slow, predictable, kinetic sculpture.
