Maskulinity.UK is designed to highlight some of the issues facing men today. In a variety of forms I try to illustrate the challenges that restrictive definitions of masculinity pose to men. I want to suggest that the reality of redundancy, anxiety and depression needs to find expression beyond the stereotype. These works may be crude but I hope they can at least inspire a discussion about the place men find themselves today.
