“I am a mix of a bower bird, procrastinator and perfectionist; the creative process for me is simultaneously painstaking and therapeutic. I work very intuitively, each collage I make takes shape serendipitously from what I can find in vintage magazines and books I have collected over time – there is something very important to me...

Cairns cleverly leads our gaze as we are drawn into direct contemplation of seascape occupied in unison with man-made constructs. Blue Latitude is a body of work in which Cairns uses focal points of... Read more

Men With Glasses is an ongoing collection, which began in 2013 as a cheeky foray into the way we view status, gender, relationships, and looks. Since then, well over 1000 heads have been collected, numbered and stored in an analogue Tinder of the past. Over five years of collecting has evolved into an in-depth analysis of... Read more
