No Looking Back (Mary) x10, 2021
Billboard print. 210 x 297cm
“I spent an afternoon drawing sunbathing naturists at Oakwood Sun Club, each without looking back at the paper. This is a ten times enlargement from a very high resolution scan of an original A4 drawing.”

Body Ascendant, 2021
Sun lounger, shoes, clothes, note book, pen, book, bungee cords
“The basic elements I had with me on my first visit to Oakwood Sun Club, that I then discarded when I felt comfortable, combined into a suspended sculpture that acts as a proxy for me as well as everything but me.

Mirrors of Oakwood #1, 2017-2020⠀
Inkjet print, tape, recycled frame, loose change, 1962 edition of Health & Efficiency magazine, epoxy resin, textiles (poncho), 50x90cm⠀
“From a series where I photographed the all the mirrors at Oakwood Sun Club. Framed as a kind of filing system with other ephemera, topped with the petrol money to get from my house to the club and back again. Each one is arranged over a piece of fabric relevant to club naturism. ‘Textile’ is the naturist nickname for non-naturists.”


Mirrors of Oakwood #2, 2017-2020⠀
Inkjet print, recycled frame, adhesive tape, loose change, epoxy resin, membership patch, textiles (souvenir tea towel), 40x55cm.

Ø (All My Clothes), 2017/2020
Cyanotype print, recycled frame, decking, bamboo, pine, CT1 adhesive, metal brackets.
“A cyanotype made at the Oakwood, of all the clothes I took off, arranged on treated paper on their sunbathing lawn. Framed with offcuts of decking. The improvised design references naturism’s embracing of imperfection, resourcefulness, and the geometry of 1920’s domestic furniture, the era when organised naturism in the UK began.”


Self Portrait as Laughter Yoga Teacher, 2020/21
Inkjet print, IKEA picture frame, AR70 museum glass.
“I drew myself in the mirror, holding a laughing expression, using pencil and the same blue and red MAC cosmetics I often use when leading Laughter Yoga sessions. I like that it is a photo of a drawing, of me pretending to fake laugh, in a cheap wood-effect frame, fitted with museum quality non-reflective glass.”

Low Squat, 2020/2021
Berocca, beetroot, coffee, blue food colouring, custom frame, pine dowel, CT1 adhesive

Vowel Laugh, 2021
Assorted woods, plastic pipe, screws, metalwork paint, clown nose, wig,
“An attempt to give form to a Laughter Yoga exercise, not only the sounds but the comparable effort to conjure a faltering replica out of raw materials and willpower. This is then also a hanger for elements of my own clown disguise.”

“A page from my Activity & Inactivity Book, that was enlarged and placed on my door for the duration of an Open Studios weekend.”
