I've always had interest in art based on science since school, except I never had the desire in pursuing a career in scientific illustration. I always wanted to remain within a contemporary art practice. I thought that didactic models had the potential to be parodied and be used in an fine art context..

I like using this type of imagery and subject matter as a vehicle for my ideas about people and what they're about.
Meanwhile, the studio continues to be busy, I'm hoping to post this week images of work being done offsite as well as pushing ahead (when I can) on my own sculpture.
I wish all of you a great upcoming week,take care. Cheers.
