Personal Statement

I enjoy searching for a variety of materials that interest me. These are usually found objects and discarded materials in the street: shoes, books, scrap metal and wood, bicycles, typewriters, aircraft parts and industrial materials. I like to take objects that people have discarded and no longer have use for. I want to give new meaning by reimagining an object or materials and creating something new.
I work intuitively with found objects, taking them apart and experimenting with reformatting them, playing with the different forms and textures that the natural objects possess. I place and attach objects that I think complement each other.

This process has come from a childhood fascination with taking things apart to find out how they work. I am attracted to the patterns, the rhythms and the sequences that the objects reveal.

I usually render the object with a single colour in order to unify all the parts of the object to create a whole.

The most interesting thing about using found objects for me is the history of the materials. Once the objects have been abandoned the original purpose for their creation is lost. Taking these objects apart and remaking them to create new sculptures, I am creating a new purpose, a new history, for these materials.
