About The Artwork

The Sculpture is made from Beech wood slats, plywood and graphite powder. My influence or starting point for this work was the "architect of the nuclear age"; Enrico Fermi who created the world's first nuclear reactor, Chicago Pile-1. Art & science has played an important part within my work whether it’s science fiction or science fact. The idea that artwork is limitless has had a profound interest for me. I want my artwork to give the viewer a sense of wonderment in showing the things that sometimes reside behind the mirror and not always in front.
