Crystal Caverns is a series of drawings completed at various stages over the past three years.
Occurring naturally within underground caves Crystal Caverns are hidden in often hard to reach rock formations. These seemingly hidden depths feature mind-blowing arrangements of organic crystal formations.
The drawings will be made available as an e-exhibition to download at a later date following an evening event held at the end of March. The event will invite visitors to take part in the curation of the e-exhibition and serendipitously coincides with the final printing week of the Independent newspaper as they choose to favour a digital only content approach.
Influences on the Crystal Caverns series include thinking about the fourth dimension, the Rock of Gibraltar, boredom, Vogue magazine and Alison Knowles’ The Big Book.

Occasionally, I find myself home alone around lunch times so I like to put Andy Warhol on YouTube and eat my lunch with him. Its a technique of 21st Century companionship and lasts about five minutes. I decided to make this video so that everyone can enjoy their lunch with me and Andy Warhol. The original film footage comes from Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth, the scene appears in his art movie “66 scenes from america” which was filmed in 1981. For my film, I filmed the footage from a YouTube video uploaded by the user Hidden Below. Happy lunching!

What’s my Methodology Again? – A comical spoken word appropriation of a ‘90s pop punk classic. This two minute thirty interpretation tells the cautionary tale of being too contemporary to study art history.
PHUNNY: (slang) (adj) something funny but phoney. /// Put some mirth into your everyday with two hilarious twenty minute episodes of canned comedy laughter without dialogue. /// Discover renewed humour in your daily actions and live your own phunny sitcom ///

My work is titled ‘What Has Gainsborough Done For You Lately?’(2013) and examines my continual fascination with the devices inherent in parameters between art and it’s histories.

The following two photographs are homage/recreations of works by Dutch Artist Bas Jan Ader whose work I am analysing for my dissertation. These two photographs were taken in March of this year whilst in West Wales. In the distance is the most Westerly tip of Wales and seemed a fitting location to complement the discovery of the artist’s boat, found as it was off the coast of Ireland by Spanish fishermen in April 1976. Thanks to Hannah for taking these. The wild landscape of West Wales coupled with the experience of falling were both inspiring epiphanic. I will be analysing Bas Jan Ader’s use of objects and the body as object to explore gravity, emotions and process in his art. To the library, its time to write this dissertation.
