Inside Out explores the psychological, physical and emotional states of men’s mental health. The nine sculptures represent the fragility, pain and struggles
of their internal battles with wellbeing. The deliberate mark-making scarification on the sculptures represents illness. My intent in manipulating clay into a series of simplistic, distorted figurative forms is for the audience to interpret the work in multiple ways. The self-portrait photographs are a personal expression of the heightened mixed emotions of stress, anxiety, depression, isolation, loneliness, inferiority, numbness, sadness and fear.
