Sculpture: Plastic, Wood, Spray Paint, Rubber, Manipulated on Plastic, Wood.
From childhood I have always been interested in airplanes , and made hung crashed and mended rubber band model planes for several years .. This work references that period of my life .. whilst also reflecting current political situations globally ..
This specific plane was based on an (unnamed) 3 inch metal model plane found in a flea market ... to which I have added some 'modifications' to increase its lumbering menace. I have also added some elements which give it a part insect like feel.. ( a game with scale perceptions ) ..
Whilst designed primarily to sit on a surface .. it can also be suspended in space somewhere slightly above head height ..
