‘All of my ‘Ruin-Lust’ works explore this idea of needing destruction as much as creation. Many of the surviving artefacts from ancient Rome and Greece are no longer intact. Sculpted images, for example, are missing limbs or facial features. These losses reflect their personal history. They are also an intrinsic part of their beauty and continuing appeal. The slow picturesque decay and abrupt apocalypse ruins are both captivating and beguiling. This piece in particular is celebrating breakages, failures, scars and stress lines. These works survived centuries, broken, missing parts, and yet they retained their enigmatic presence. Their breakages somehow make them even more beautiful.’ – Joy BC
