My practice is formed by investigation into the social pressures which formulate our decisions in life. Influenced by my own personal issues with anxiety and depression I aim to create a visual understanding as to how certain habits are nourished in the expense of not only my own personal wellbeing but the wellbeing of others. The investigation has allowed me to understand the use of humour in my practice as a notion to ‘cover up’ my issues via prototypical toxic masculinity. Despite the connotations linked with using humour to deflect negative issues, it has become a foundation of my practice as it allows a gateway for communication as it breaks down barriers. As I break down these barriers of my own psyche, I hope it allows others to let down their guard and open theirs for the better.
