The Burning Continues

The Burnt Offering

I burn Frocks. That’s what I do.
The Remains of Myth is a series of works which attempt to deconstruct gender constructs based on Jungian type Archetypes epitomised by found articles of clothing. These items of clothing are then literally decontructed by becoming contructs on plywood altered by burning. Burning can be seen as the ultimate force for change as in the Phoenix which rises anew from the ashes of it’s father.
I burn frocks. That’s what I do.
