I don't like people very much. Because of this, everything I make seems to be an attempt to populate my physical environment in such a way that I have never had to walk out the front door. Trophy #6 plays with this idea and more common use of the term Interior Design; of my psychological spaces and the making solid of the twilight creatures dredged up from within; and of our built environments. My bastardised hybrids are remade, remodeled and reupholstered versions of the natural world, made safe and functional. Wilderness tamed - providing decorative embellishment for designer dwellings.
