A drawing of a young Dylan Thomas taken from the artist’s apartment and placed on the floor of the gallery as if waiting to be hung. This work is never to be sold and will remain in the possession of the artist always.
The photograph of the work below, inside the artist’s home, is taken from the vantage point of the artist whilst sitting on his toilet.

Two plastic cups containing ‘hundreds and thousands’ (the decorative candy for cakes and ice cream). The cup of candy on the left was poured in, whilst, the cup on the right individually placed one piece at a time over a period of six months. The candy pieces have remained undisturbed since the moment they were initially placed inside the cup.

Rhetorical stink bomb or clumsy allegory for the meaning of life is an egg protected inside a nest made of paper clips. The work is part performance, part sculpture. The egg’s preservation is the responsibility of the artist. Rhetorical stink bomb or clumsy allegory for the meaning of life will remain active for as long as the egg remains unscathed and hopefully the remainder of the artist’s life. If the egg is damaged or if the artist dies, the sculpture will be buried as a ceremonial end to the performance.

Never say never is a lifelong work where the artist has omitted the word ‘art’ from his spoken vocabulary. Each time the artist makes the mistake of speaking the word aloud a recording is made to mark the last time it was said.

7/18 – My Biscuit Ate Itself
A comprehensive study of nothing was created in 2008 but never exhibited. The work is being retroactively realised in its first public presentation, seven years after it was originally made. The sun, the window and the gallery are additional components in the presentation of the work; taking it beyond the light box and placing it into the context of a total installation.
A note on the original work – The light source from the light box was photographed, ten times, exposing the entire film with the same image. The roll of film was then processed and placed back onto the light box and the process repeated again and again.
