"The origins of ‘The Chocolate Watchers’ drawing began within the mind of an exhibition called ‘Nothing is ever Black and White’ to be centralised in one of the empty shop spaces on the Albert Docks, Liverpool. The initial idea was to create a whole army of miniature chocolate figures each no bigger than four or five inches tall that would be found climbing out from under drain covers, within sinks and from the crevices of structural features.
They were to be like an invading army of say something as silly as Cybermen (The 1960s type) looking up to see they had invaded a land of giants (us). Who was Big Brother looking down? on them now feeling hopeless within their actions.
Chocolate is a luxurious commodity often idolised by us the humans but is also a fluid made up organic compounds that change over time. Decay become prevalent with the odour of the natural elements slowly eating away at that once sweet sent. Echoes of time’s interaction with living forms are often a feature in the artists practice and thoughts of artworks changing over a period of time appeal towards a poetic reflection of life from birth to death, there is a given slot of time to each and every living form no more no less."
