This was a solo exhibition at MOSTYN in Llandudno. Taking Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel painting of the same name as a starting point and reference, The Last Judgement included a range of new and existing sculptural works exhibited as an installation. The exhibition built on my long-standing use of popular culture and history in my work, along with my interest in historical paranoias, created by things such as The Cold War, and in our ability as individuals to influence the world around us, for better or for worse. As part of my research for The Last Judgement, I revisited classic works from art history such as Goya’s ‘Black Paintings’, key works by Hieronymous Bosch and works by the acclaimed Welsh artist, Edgar Herbert Thomas, the latter a great-great uncle by marriage. A key collaboration was with the fairground ride painter, Chris Gadd, who I worked with on the creation of the 5m x 4m painting that formed the central focus of the show. Alongside my exhibition, I also curated an exhibition by the seminal British Pop Artist, Derek Boshier – drawing out connections between our practices.
