Artist Biography

Ear Drum Buzz

2022

This title was inspired by one of the first of these sculptures that I made in December 2021. Ideas around sound, music, energy and hearing are contained in these works. The inspiration for this series of works stems from biro drawings. I have always liked the typical ballpoint blue ink on paper. I have made works in the past that involved drawing with biro, such as 80W, 2013, a 1:1 scale drawing of a solar panel. I have been looking at the characteristics of these marks through magnifying means for many years.  Each of these sculptures starts from the same length of steel and develops through 3 dimensional drawing.

I like to work with metal and  other found objects and I enjoy exploring different surface treatments. I have worked with repetition enough to learn how illusive chance can be.

Forward Looking Structure

 

I’m concerned with human evolution, anthropology, innovation and the landscape. I enjoy exploring form, texture and colour in my work. I am looking at the boundaries of perception and interpretation. I welcome ideas from mis-perception and chance.Ideas appear as abstract thoughts from various starting points, and then evolve through drawings, collages, maquettes and material trials.

My material choices are an instinctive and playful process, made with consideration of their suitability for the concept but they also aid in decision making whilst constructing. I use various conventional materials such as wood, metal, paper, found objects but have also used soil and plant fibre.

Currently, I am working with ideas around AI, machine learning and questioning the drive for innovation ,” …crucial to the continuing success of any organisation”.
