The word consume can mean to eat/drink, to expend, to engross/obsess, to waste and to destroy.

That says everything about Consumer Society for me.

The Furies Collection evolved out of a want and need to celebrate tragic starlets from the golden age of cinema. Lindsay Lohan ain't got nothing on Clara Bow, trust me.

"Furies" in greek/roman mythology were "beings"/creatures that emerged from the blood of someone dead, deities sent to avenge crimes; predominantly for female victims. My research on the starlets can be seen here. But these works are a celebration of the hollywood actresses in a bid to let them not be forgotten. A lot of these women's films have been left to rot and in consequence are now destroyed, I feel that pop culture mythology and greek/roman mythology should not be forgotten, but the legends should continue to be acknowledged and enjoyed. The vintage rosettes have been up-cycled as an objet d'arte but also using the spirit of the rosette, to mark your commitment/adoration.

In my fury I have created these Furies. X

New Work

Finally a project I have imagined, toiled, toyed, dreamed and loved is coming to an end. I can't say where these works will be exhibited, but rest assured The Furies Collection will be layed to rest in all it's glory. So above are photographs of the works in progress, enjoy x
