My work explores ideas and subject matter often taboo in art, such as the sentimental, the cute and the nice. The painting style transforms and elevates the original throwaway kitsch image so it cannot be dismissed as merely a "bad painting". The subject matter is simple, strong and "in your face". These subverted cliches confront us with our ideas of what is considered "good" and "bad" taste. They question our cultural standpoint - the gap between the art world and the creativity of everyone else - "My taste is better than yours". read full statement
