I made this image when the lights went out in my room. I was working on the back of a door with a pencil and continued working in the dark. I was inspired by the MRI scans I had of my body and I started to draw a skull and spine with a floating jolting movement probably brought on by the flickering lights.
After brain surgery on a spinal condition as a young adult I started making figurative pictures. They were slightly tortured figures using a combination of the imagery I saw in my MRI scans and just expressing how I felt.
I had a long time of struggle. The pain in my arm stopped me painting so I made some work with my cat Larry instead.
It taught me that there was more to life then putting myself in a mental and physical prison.
I went further with my need to explore media with performance in a giant badger outfit. Starring in upstaged talent show on BBC3 and touring throughout England, Edinburgh and Berlin. The badger symbolises for me survival and my grandfather gave me a taxidermy badger as a child- I still have it now.
I have photographs of these adventures.Some prints available of figurative paintings. And some original work from Larry the cat artist.
