Research context: Pyramid Selling drew on a number of starting points, including those of literature, and the world of commercial illustration and graphic design. This immersive installation was akin to walking into an illustration: a strange, roughly rendered world variously populated by an array of absurdist characters. On show were a crew of line-drawn folk, perhaps recalling New Yorker cartoons or Quentin Blake sketches, scaled up as Jesmonite-and-steel cut-outs, incongruously surrounded by monstrously large sculptural red zips. External allusions to literature and theatre abounded, but I wanted to lift the viewer from the constraints of our world and plop them down into the anarchic space of drawing, with its boundless possibilities of scale and form.
