My work is simultaneously a deconstruction of the narrative of iconic paintings and a reconstruction of them using contemporary symbolism. With the use of projection, lighting and sculpture combined into installations I attempt to merge what was with what could be. The upcoming interim exhibition will present my installation ‘The Birth of Venus’ and will characterised by neon lighting revealing the work in a dark room. Illuminated in the darkness will be a white sculpture of Kim Kardashian as ‘Venus’ complimented by other iconic elements in the painting of ‘The Birth of Venus’ including the clam shell and palm trees.
