The series of tiles pictured were made of teracotta and porcelain slip. The making process and the sgraffito images were done quickly and placed in the street in selected areas where different types of street art were prevalent.
The monster-like characters portrayed on the tiles are a representation of something that has been a part of me for as long as I have been making art; like an alter-ego. They are responsive to the dialogue that can take place between people, objects and images.
Over the years, I have used the imagery of the monsters in sculptures, paintings and drawings, but only recently started using them on ceramic tiles. Ceramics is something that I have loved for many years, and not having the skill to use a spray can or the patience to make a stencil, it finally feels right to have a medium to use in the street.
