"Head Case", Phantom of Ego/Armour Series, 2018
Cast Glass
21 x 18.5 x 20 cm

My work is how I see and deal with my pride and ego; I explore the tension between the image we think we project and the reality of our experiences donning the armour of pride. Something that is ornamental and fragile rather than strong and solid, something heavy and burdensome rather than functional and light. I use glass to create a phantom of ego we wrap around ourselves for protection, letting its translucency show its lack of substance, and beauty to show how high we elevate its importance.
