THE ISLANDS OF NILJORA
From madness and nothingness came the creature Niljora...
These works are the artefacts of my mythical world, The Islands of Niljora. Crossing the genres of legend, fairytale, and myth, the world of Niljora is a reflection on our overarching human story - our history, modern world, civilisation, philosophy, and the human experience. I am interested in symbolic storytelling and the power in the world of tales - their origins, mercurial nature, and cyclical play in history. Primordial, coded, and mysterious, I see in these works a connection to my lifelong fascination with the arts of the Ancient World, which to behold have always presented to me an elegant and tantalising puzzle of untold tales.
