My practice is a playful one of meandering, manipulated poetic simple incidents.
When creating a body of work I tend to find a simple system of construction and then allow it to evolve naturally, never within a restricted or arduous manner but composing mischievous and animated constructions often humorously disrupted.
Notions of weight, balance, replication, and implied function help dictate the construction but can then become redundant to its ultimate installation, finalized at the last moment in the excitement of its surroundings.
Manipulateing found materials and ready-made objects into beguiling sculptural works that play with notions of proportion and balance. With its intricate sense of touch, recalling the work of modernist Constructivism, albeit contaminated by a sense of the contemporary world, evident in the domestic source materials used to make the work.
I am represented in the UK by the Simon Oldfield Gallery.
