“I have been combining and morphing Franz von Bayros’ (28 May 1866 – 3 April 1924, Austrian Decadent commercial artist) imagery to undermine the overt hetero-erotic nature of his beautifully patterned imagery. Within the works’ narratives already exists youthful curiosity to sexual experimentation as well as submissive and dominant roleplaying between women, women and men, albeit under the harsh gaze of the male. By changing the gender identification of subjects I am able to exaggerate/promote further transgressions (homo- and pan- sexuality; castration, death and rebirth, spirituality, laughter…) for the purpose of addressing erotic feelings within the viewer that he/she might feel to be exposed or exploited.” – Aaron Sheppard
