Research

Reveling in material and visual flippancy, I fidget, probe and tweak the abundant dark matter of studio experimentation and collected pound-shop tat. The resulting accumulations present a potential momentary resolution between improvisation and refinement.

The works form part of a continuous and evolving search for meaning and understanding through a very physical and hands on experience that is prioritized over a foregrounding in language.  Individual pieces often emerge from the physical and intellectual processes of fidgeting, impatience and intuition, employing the rejected and discarded matter of experimentation and speculation; where one work often springs from the destruction of another.
