H A P P Y L A N D

My first collection of exhibited drawings and paintings, circus and freak show themed, and includes illustrations on paper as well as more unconventional art objects. H A P P Y L A N D is an investigation into life through a child's eyes - a child who is told that the monsters under the bed aren't real.

I exhibited a vast collection of three dimensional objects, masks, appropriated images and ornaments, pen & ink portraits and customised museum boxes stuffed full with broken, psychedelic toys in a stitched-together imaginary world of H A P P Y L A N D.

 

Brain-eating slug-men, jolly, headless ballerinas and a schizophrenic jamboree of clown folk with dubious intentions decorated the foyer and cafe areas of Jackson's Lane Theatre, London, for their inaugural Postcards Festival.


H A P P Y L A N D exists in the cracks between dreams and nightmares. A place where North is South of upside down. Best viewed through a child’s eyes! Don't be frightened, nothing is real.
