ARTIST STATEMENT

Working under the pseudonym, Tinky, I create small sculptural installations by assembling vintage or found objects with miniature characters and a comedic narrative.

Each element of an installation shines a light on the absurdity of an unfolding drama, calamitous undertaking, or playful folly.

Faced with a world of mismatched proportions and unexpected scenarios, each miniature character displays a dream-like determination to make the best of their odd situation – aided and abetted by a darkly humorous caption.

My installations shift between activating non-spaces – such as a gutter, or a hole-in-the-wall in streets, buildings and laneways – to curated gallery spaces.

I see my work as an act of forcing the viewer to look at the everyday world and public spaces anew, using comedy as a connector.
