Last night's private view of Games People Play saw the unveiling of a dissected dollar bill in a different format. Made from real dollars, the series is very intricate by nature, and I love that it forces the viewer to question what they are seeing and recognise parts of the dollar that they have never truly looked at before. See what you think of the images below.

The genre-busting artHAUS exhibition at DegreeArt Gallery is still open until June. Having been featured in the guardian's lifestyle picks, it's well worth a visit - It is very inspiring for me to see the art in the context of interior design.

My recent group show ArtHAUS has been featured in the Evening Standard including images of my work in the 'living room' - "Bursting with statement pieces by up-and-coming creative talent, this eclectic show is bridging the gap between contemporary art and interior design.

It's a HAUS full of intrigue - Chopped up money, amazing vintage sofas, a human sized apple, giant paintings of our lovely Queen, organic sculptures growing in the bathroom, and a 'kitchen sculpture' made from a pile of fragile, ephemeral egg shells.

If you didn't make it there's another chance to meet the artists at a private view & press viewing next Thursday. It has been fantastic to get such great coverage from the likes of Art Review and Guardian, for both the show as a whole and my own series of Ha’dollar artworks which Londonist noted as “hypnotic dissections and re-arrangements of one dollar bills that make you question what you’re seeing”. (see more press here).Read More
