Rock is the material backbone to my creative explorations and the conceptual focus of my sculptures. Over the years my physical involvement with rock has become increasingly minimal as I combine this most traditional of sculpting materials with more contemporary and technically challenging ones such as clear cast resin, cast stainless steel, mirrors and photography.
Typically the sculptures consist of opposing parts that suggest a unity or the possibility of a relationship that is, or was, once intimate and that could perhaps be so again. By isolating a section of the physical world and presenting that with it’s alter ego, the work presents us with a number of states, or possibilities for that which is, or could be. The sculptures reflect what is around us, acknowledging beauty, the natural world and our position within it.
