An exhibition of ‘mixed media’ sculptures primarily created using reused, recycled & re-purposed materials. Using objects gleaned from car boot sales & charity shops on rare trips out with Red Cross initiated befriender &/or more latterly the artist’s disability service dog.

The sculptures reflect a love of museum ‘Cabinets of Curiosities’, Natural History, Taxidermy, witchcraft & pagan folklore, as well as figurative sculptures influenced by Greek/Roman mythology & history.

“Housebound on disability benefits for 10yrs means a lot of time, but few resources to teach oneself to sculpt” – The Kuriologist

There is also a justgiving fundraising appeal to help meet the artist’s costs of staging the exhibition
