The exhibition
The Living room exhibition contained a number of drawings created over several months in 2005, it referred to a period of time spent in the living room of my flat in east London.

Through the drawing of everyday objects I hoped not to create works of great glory but to refer to the everyday-ness of our normal lives.

An ordinary world
The more I learn and experience in my life the more I realise that the most amazing things surround us, objects and situations that we take for granted are in fact often works of great complexity and creativity. Why do you need ghosts and aliens when we are surrounded by such interesting and unique things, if you give ordinary objects a chance they will impress you, you do not have to travel to the moon to see something new?

The living room exhibition used the House gallery space to recreate a plan of my living room, complete with the objects that have been in it for the first 7 months of 2005.
The drawings were presented using flat boards which stand on the floor within the shape of my living room which has been mapped out on to the floor.
