About The Artwork

A tower sculpture constructed from found wood (mostly from dismantled, early to mid-20th Century V&A Museum packing crates) and metal. The front of the top section is carved from a single block of tulip wood. Although seemingly random in construction, all the pieces and designed so that they interlock - creating a surprisingly sturdy construction. The sculpture dismantles into four seperate sections for ease of packing and transportation between shows.

BIOG. Based in London between 1999 and 2016, I have now re-located my studio and art practice to Shropshire. Coming from an illustration, painting and print-making background I am now as well known for my sculptures and drawings. In 2005 I was awarded a bursary and membership from the Royal British Society of Sculptors. As well as my work appearing in international exhibitions, magazines and on TV (including BBC 2's 'The Culture Show', Channel 4 News, London Live, and Channel 4's 'Four Rooms'), my sculptures have appeared in the feature film, 'Scratch', directed by Jakob Rørvik. In 2013 I was commissioned to produce a series of paintings for the horror film 'Bliaze of Gory'. My work is featured regularly in on-line articles and interviews, including two separate articles in The Huffington Post. I have organised and run art/sculpture workshops for schools and businesses since 1998, including ones for ING Bank's London headquarters via the Royal British Society of Sculptors. John Malkovich chose my script, 'Doppelganger', as the winning entry in the 2008 Sony VAIO Scriptwriting competition. This script, along with Malkovich's was then turned into the short animated film, ‘Snow Angel’. “ … I’m going to go with the “Doppelganger” script. It’s clever, inventive, and somehow both surprising and inevitable. Very neatly done all in all.” John Malkovich (4th Jan. 2008). As well as working on my own projects I accept commissions. My clients include Mary Fox Linton, Andy Martin Architects, Converse, Dawood and Tanner, Domus, Ctrl.Alt.Shift, private collectors, and the Ping Pong restaurant chain. ARTISTS STATEMENT The majority of my sculptural work involves the reworking and assemblage of found objects/materials. Materials that I feel have a certain ‘resonance’. Much of my work centres on the theme of memory or its fallibility. This is more strongly evident in my pieces that incorporate or recreate childhood artifacts and toys. A prime example of this is ‘And When I’m a Man’, the life size sculpture of myself as a twelve piece, pre-assembly, model kit. An important aspect of the piece is its bright green colour, which was chosen to match my memory of that of a childhood toy – realizing that the memory would have mutated; exaggerating the luridness of colour. Another re-occurring theme or motif in my work is that of the wheeled box or tower, which relates to containment, the urge to possess and restricted mobility.
