My Dad and I completed our short term residency in PS² at the the end of January. The process and the outcome provided some new insight into this ongoing collaboration. What began as a method of transferring artistic production, whilst commenting on my own constructed masculine identity, has developed in to a production (and conceptual) partnership.

There is progression to be had with this project and I suspect part three will not be far away.

I was contacted back in October by the editor of Sleek Magazine -a Berlin based contemporary Art and Fashion magazine- asking if they could feature an imaged from my recent installation work, RIPPED CHISELED AND ROCK HARD!. The issue focused on masculinity and its various contemporary representations. An essay by Hili Perlson examining the ways in which artists have explored the spectrum of masculine visual representations was illustrated by artists such as Stewart UooMichele Abeles,  Nic Guagnini, Bill Hayden and Ellen Altfest and myself.

It was a real honor to be asked to contribute to this issue of Sleek and to be featured along such established artists.
