I have recently been looking at the affirmative model of disability and looking into the processes of perception, with reference to Gestalt theory or laws of perceptual organization and other psychological practices combined with the neurological effects on how art affects the viewer on an unconscious level.
Combining this with the history of those that have come before me, the work I achieve can be surreal and contemporary, thought provoking with sometimes a soupçon of humor.
“We are not supposed to understand that non disabled people feel uncomfortable at our presence in the world and that what they sometimes feel is more than discomfort it is revulsion, the central confusion of the relationship between us is that on one hand they are disconcerted by our presence, and confused about how to behave towards us or even what words they should use to describe us, on the other hand they have a clear idea that they should be helpful and kind, our part of the bargain is to ignore their unease and confusion and except the 'help' .Our gratefulness is part of the lie that everything is really alright between us.”
My influences include Marcel Duchamp, Sue Austin, Susan phillipz, Pablo Picasso, Christoph Niemann, Es Devlin, Vincent Van gogh to name but a few.
