Artist Statement:

This collection of work is a reflection on leadership debates, the Royal family and G summit series and how they undermine democracy often leading to violently disrupting and infringing on the civilians and cities in which they are hosted. These well-publicized events highlight an opportunity for world leaders and corporations to bump elbows, share anecdotes and discuss economic philosophy, disregarding any opportunity for public participation or representation. For me these events resemble a gathering of the animal powerhouse’s from the financial and political jungles where only the wealthy survive. I have chosen to replace the faces of these leaders and corporate representatives with those of animals that I feel reflect a truer sense of their character.
