About The Artwork

The table was cast aside as a useless item, missing a leg. I saw the potential and rescued it. Enjoying the interplay and contradiction of opposites I decided to repair the fallen table and give it back some use and dignity. I appreciate the notion that the modern is juxtoposed with the old, giving new meaning and a lease of life. I am offering the opportunity of comparison - the old, decorative, 'antique' style propped up with a crisp, clean, modern, no-nonsense practical solution. Subconsciously, to begin with at least, I may have been influenced by the fact that I personally have a prosthetic shoulder joint that is also silvery and shiney, ftted into an ageing body. This sculpture is the first of two. See Prosthetic 2 also

I was born and grew up in Nottingham, England. I moved to Sunderland, England in 1995 to study for my (1st Class) BA(Hons) Degree in Photography, Video & Digital Imaging. In 1999 I moved up the road to Newcastle upon Tyne where I remained until 2005, apart from a 5 month spell of living in Paris in 2002. In 2005 I moved to London and gained a MA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in 2006. I am interested in manipulating meaning and deconstructing this to offer alternative narratives. I am currently working with found objects and materials where I alter perceived qualities and attributes, enhancing an objects materiality or its accepted signification.
