  • “I would like to portray a different way of perceiving the world around us. Allowing people to experience the work and ‘feel something’…it seems too often that people have become desensitised by the world around them. If I can give people a minute of true emotion, then the work is successful.”
    — Adam Handler

    “I want people to look at my work and just be like ‘oh, I f*cking love that, you know? That’s amazing, That makes me feel good to have almost a great relationship with it and not feel intimidated. I want people to feel comfortable, you know? Like, you come to my house, I want you to feel cosy, take off your shoes - that’s how I kind of want people to look at my work.”
