These ‘things’ are resolutely abstract. I want a reaction to arise from rhythms, structures, space and form. Necessarily, they are engineered constructions that obey rules of matter. Most of my time by far, goes into the construction process, aiming to fulfil the instinctive gesture that comes to me. I hope to bring life to ‘stuff’. I like to think people will notice what keeps ‘the thing’ balanced, upright, while at the same time recognising some of materials from other uses and lost histories, but most importantly feeling some physical empathy with the inferred gestures.
