A series of photographs from when i stalked my housemate for a month. I managed to get him very drunk one night and allow him to strip for me while i took hundreds of photos. He only became aware that these images existed when he saw them on the wall at uni. Fortunately he took it well and consents to them being put on the internet.

A performance done in collaboration with Pixie. 10 times at Brink gallery in Kenilworth.
For this piece of work Pixie took on the persona of a psychiatrist and asked willing members of the audience vague, non intrusive questions, while i stood dressed in an artists smock, silent, blindfolded listening to the responses. In the time it took them to answer all the questions i created an abstract portrait each of them based on my first impression.
Hopefully i will be able to do about 20 more and have enough to put them in different groups and demographics based on the individuals responses. In the end creating a whole graph of paintings that will maybe show some correlation of the different characters we have interviewed. Or maybe it won’t.
