I am constantly excited by materials and the possibilities, opportunities and energy they bring to the studio. I am addicted to making, re-defining, re-exploring and solving space.
My work playfully references sculpture, design, painting and architecture; but constantly returns to the experience and adventure of actually seeing and making - the journey. Simplistic architectural forms suggest function andallow the viewer an introduction, a pathway to look further and be seduced by the painterly play.
Each facet collides with the next at perpendicular angles. Convergences of colour, pattern and subtle reflections create an interplay between the surfaces of the objects themselves as well as the environment in which they exist.
Material and colour are playfully but deliberately used to enrapture the viewer yet toy with their expectations of 3-dimensional forms. Visually arresting yet teasingly suggestive of function, the objects challenge the hierarchy of sculpture itself.
Architectural forms suggest baroque simplicity; their utilitarian scale invites interaction and flirts with function; their mischievous use of colour and surface seduces the viewer into playful familiarity and allows the space for contemplation.
The elephant in the room is a colourful and beguiling one, and you simply can't take your eyes of it.
I am open to commissions. Please feel free to contact me with your proposals.
