I make small soldered compositions. I use reclaimed copper electrical wire and spray-paint. In this work I regularly represent the human figure. The figures traverse a kind of ‘forcefield’ of thought or feeling. Isolated from its context the figure can suggest other imaginative possibilities. My primary aim is to represent some of the truths of ordinary human action.
I also draw using coloured pencil, pen and ink. I additionally work with clay, make moulds in plaster and do casts in cement. Some drawings employ a method where the central motif is scratched out of layers of cross-hatched, coloured pencil using a scalpel. Some drawings build up a ground created from grids of ink lines. My plaster and cement works develop out of my drawing work. I am interested in aesthetic experience and its relationship to other kinds of experience. This work is generally abstract with flashes of representation.
