Art in Potters Bar: from 13th December 2019 see a wide range of my work at the Wenta offices, alongside other Herts Visual Arts members.
I collect ideas, images, things, then play with composition. Finally, I assemble: real/ imaginary townscapes, 3-D print sculpture, re-imagined work.
A lifetime of engineering, languages and art, alongside natural and built environments all inspire and inform my practice. I love that information and physical objects can be put together in so many ways and at the same time experienced so differently by individuals. Armed principally with pens and found materials, I draw, write and build to explore the world around us. First I collect ideas, images and things, then I play around with composition. Sometimes I start with a specific idea, sometimes the journey dictates the outcome. Always, always, the journey is important and the outcome underpinned by research even as I assemble the final piece. Do come and see me, come and look at these snapshots that capture a moment, perhaps the essence of something, a pattern, memory, a place, a slice of history. I look forward to meeting you.
Working at the intersection of art and technology I'm always pushing materials and composition for STEAM powered outcomes. Can tapestries be woven from old newspapers or corrugated card? What happens when you reassemble an image in a different way? What's the best use for watch/clock parts, keys, nails and all those things in our shed? Does anyone know?
