The 3D still life has been the primary focus of recent work and remains the current influence. I am still drawn to the spatial relationships of object, scale and context, and continue to investigate the potential of disparate elements to form a relationship with new meanings when brought together.
This tension between every day mass produced objects, laboriously crafted objects, and in some cases cast figures, is persued further by arranging and presenting as if on a stage. The sum total of this is a layering of symbolism that considers personal, social and environmental issues.
A recent inclusion in these smaller scale works is the human figure. The scope for invention and expression is limitless and I am still developing a way to use and depict a tradition that carries so much historical weight.
