When South Place Hotel invited me to display my photos in their private members club, I could have curated a selection of work from my existing catalogue and proudly handed over a ready-made exhibition. But where's the fun in that? Instead, I decided to set myself a challenge. I'd develop, produce, shoot and hang an original series of work, specifically with the venue in mind – in just 4 weeks.
'SYRUP' is all about colour and gloss, filth and stickiness. It's about decadence, about deliciousness... and my love of hotdogs. The exhibition has two 'sides'. Side 1 is so brash it makes your teeth itchy. An antedote to Side 1, Side 2 is still and clean and calm. A palette cleanser, if you like!
'Is it covered in sauce? Is it really sweet? Aye. I'll have one.'
