I use a subtle form of subversive parody in my work to develop concepts about ideas in and of art i.its integration into the pedestrian landscape and the process and motivations involved in its creation. I explore and develop ideas as themes through the use of scrupulous mimesis. With this exhibition I will address and highlight the contradiction inherent in the use of contemporary visual art as home decoration by creating a full-scale installation based on popular interior design practices.
