Social comment about the futility and banality of man’s irrational bigotry and racism highlighted by simple use of colour.


Urinataur
Life-size bronze, ceramic and aluminium. A pop art contemporary representation of the Greek legend, the Minotaur. A young woman has unwisely strayed into the Urinataur’s labyrinth, the ‘Gentlemans’, and is being devoured by a half urinal, half graffiti painted bull. A warning for all the ‘ladettes’ out there? Is she as unwilling as we might imagine or has the Urinataur bitten off more than he can chew? Will Theseus rescue her in time? Does she want to be rescued?

Theseus
Life-size bronze and aluminium. Contemporary update of the Theseus legend. A modern day Theseus complete with mobile phone is on the hunt for the Urinataur and also holds the last remaining connecting rod from the crankshaft in his hand. Can Theseus save the girl?
