Duration Based Conceptual Performance Artist
Over the past year like everyone else, we have had to find ways to keep motivated especially with all the negative news that COVID brings. We are living with the unknown, in these unpredictable times, as humans we are trying to keep some kind of normality in our lives, some kinds of structure that allows us to fulfil our destiny, to develop and grow and human beings, but constantly being tested by the restrictions, all our countries infringe upon us, for our own good, who knows what good it brings, or where it will end, if it ever ends. Maybe this is something we may have to just find a way to live with.
Over the past eight months I have been looking into creating a new hybrid creature, inspired by mythology, especially the mythology of the rabbit.
The Hybrid creature has become a new focus, linked to my research.
Above image as work in progress. I took a latex mask and built it up using fur from old vintage coats.
The new mask.

As part of the hybrid creature, I made a shrine to all rabbits and hares, which was part of a short film I made in Norfolk at the Warreners Lodge in Thetford.

I came across a Blacksmith in Novi Sad, we were shown around his workshop.
