About The Artwork

A sense of solidity is given by the regularity of shapes of the hexahedra. The smaller, thinner hexahedra on their own and inside some of the larger forms should lead to an impression of progression or growth, a transition from the crystalline, mineral shapes in the suspended frames, on to the more organic starburst or rosette on the wall leading on, assembling itself or condensing to the partial or fully solid reflective solids on the floor. The reflective forms providing a visual barrier, a rejection of solidity at the same time a being an impenetrable surface contrasting with the openness of the wire forms. Alternatively, if read from the floor upwards the process could be one of decay, dissolution and evaporation moving from solid matter through an illusion of growth to eventual non-materiality.

My practice is strongly influenced by my background in engineering. Research and experimentation are important elements. I love the challenge of using different processes and exploring new ideas and ways of seeing. I can categorise my work into subject groups such as, nature/figurative/organic, mathematical/geometrical, or political/social. It can also be partitioned by methodology: for example; the investigation of perceptual processes (such as illusion or tactile effects), exploration of edges, boundaries, voids and volume, or repetition, collections and multiples. While visual impact is important to me, the exploration of the idea is often the most critical element. The geneses of my projects are diverse. Ideas may come from a particular material, an object, an event, a suggested theme, the natural world, an image or a process. Typically, I will devise a question, or set up a research process, or a series of experiments, the results of which inform and steer me towards the final work. I often work on several themes simultaneously. I work in a variety of materials according to needs of the work in progress, this has included sculptures in wood, stainless steel as well as castings in glass, bronze and iron. The design process is necessarily iterative, frequently requiring additional contextual and technical research to extend my conceptual and theoretical knowledge of subject, art practice, tools and processes. This often generates a series of related but disparate ideas for work. I work from my studio in West Wales.
