I have decided to include text in my ‘Theatre Of The Grotesque’ series in a more prominent (and less subtle) way than I have in the past … mainly because I have analysed issues I have had from the more ‘normal’ people in our society, and I wanted to respond creatively to this.
While I still love using medical imagery as my inspiration, I have decided to embed a social message in these as well. ‘CONFORM’ was the first that came to mind, after a discussion with a colleague in which I was ridiculed for having an alternative point of view. Society gets scared by people who have different opinions … we are mad, bad and dangerous to know!!
