My practice is mainly concerned with the abuse of power in society. I’m agnostic in terms of media and technique, partly because I think these choices can powerfully carry meaning, can be a hook; but also because I can’t imagine putting anything off limits. I love the process of figurative sculpture though so this forms a significant part of my approach. I want my art to be accessible and to foster debate, to be easily argued over. I’m fascinated by Jacques Rancière’s idea that the power of political art doesn’t lie in the tension between the art and its inherent politics but in the tension between it being simultaneously art and non-art: a hundred years after the idea that anything could be art, that art may be infected with non-art and become both more powerful and less valuable.

A graduate in Fine Art at Cambridge School of Art (2015), I live in Essex with my wife, the author Clare Mulley, our three daughters and a lurcher.
