“The birth of my son Henri has forever changed my life. This body of work is an attempt to preserve and document the fleeting moments of his infancy. I am investigating the varied spaces of parenthood from the liminal and spiritual to the quirky, comical and unconditional. My wife and I share a physical and psychological connection to another entity that is a literal part of each of us, and this concept is made evident in some of the works. Dis- embodied arms become the instruments that physically connect and navigate our child through space as he discovers a new world. Pull ropes and handles on the toy-like figures suggest notions of play, transience and a dependence on relationships. The daily rituals of bottle feedings, diaper changes and pure exhaustion have replaced the nervous anticipation; however, I cannot overlook the moments of gibbering baby talk and ‘pure’ cuteness on this brave new journey of parenthood.”
