Art is a mimesis of reality; the reality being the everyday. This reality that we have become accustomed to has been appropriated. This alternate ‘reality’, which has been created, embraces humorous obscurities by acknowledging the mundane and the ludicrous. The work is an investigation that explores where the alternate reality is present and where is ceases to exist.

As the study of these interpretations of the obscure commences through interdisciplinary means, what is asked of the viewer is their engagement. The spectator should approach the work with an open mind to experience this alternate world with alternate rules.

There are playful notions present amongst these ambiguities displayed through simplistic aesthetics, which mimics that of Postmodernist views. I have “become a manipulator of signs rather than a passive manipulator of the aesthetics”, (Obsborne and Sturgis, 2006)
