My work has always been constructed from society’s cast-offs. When stripped of their consumer value an underlying beauty independent of their former function is revealed transforming and honoring the energy within the materials. The found material and objects both trigger memories and stories of dysfunction, rejection and abandonment but also joy and happiness.
Eclectic in scale ranging from hundreds of tiny objects to massive pieces each work carries a strong narrative.
Created for both interior and exterior sites, my work is labour-intensive which suits my sensibilities and reflects an anti-industrial approach that celebrates the maker’s hand with exuberant iconology.
