Fox Galleries presents Disexiona collage painting series with freely drawn figures, that dissect, cross and intersect. An interdependent build up of imagery and textures provides a playful narrative into human relationships and amorous connection.

Eddie states:

Society has been dissected through the changes we are experiencing with covid-19. Life is being puzzled back together again never to be the same again. Using sexual orientation as a symbol of dividing coherence, I analyse how we puzzle life back again, breaking down sexual and racial discrimination to promote interaction.
