The catalyst for ROBBED was the aftermath of a curiously self-destructive relationship. A catastrophic experience of love and loss that was both, inevitable and preventable right from the very start.
ROBBED is a deeply personal LGBT project that was inspired by the courage of a partner in the closet. The diamond dust, design project was born from a partners struggle with his sexuality, his identity and his place in this world. Empowering a viewer with a glimpse at micro-moments of pure lust; The text within the project was lifted directly from conversations during an intense relationship that was cut short when it all became too real.
This project containing twelve limited edition screen prints and one unique lightbox sculpture, aims to fight stigma around LGBT issues, coming out and mental health in the 21st century. Maxwell’s previous partner was paralysed with the fear that revealing his sexual identity would push his family away. The budding romance was unable to mature into a wholesome and meaningful relationship. Instead it was shrouded in concealment, shame and hollow promises.
A percentage of sales will be donated to Switchboard LGBT+ Helpline.
