Background, history, commissioner of the work
Part of a series of works made for my undergraduate degree show. Due to the pandemic the work was first show at the alt/degree show in the Briggait in 2021. (https://www.thealternativedegreeshowfestival.com/home)
My Current work thinks through normativity and traditional family values through the figure of the pet. In the past, my work has expanded the borders of the pet subject position to include children finding similarities to the dog such as awards, training, treats and trauma. Rooted in classical disciplines of sculpture, drawing and printmaking my work situates itself in the familiar while reaching towards the bizarre. Drawings generate new sculptural ideas with entropic momentum.
