Those Long Hot Summers, 2016
This work is created using a found plastic table which accidentally got burned during a summer evening. The use of vintage fabric echoes the kind of covering which may have previously covered such an object when it functioned as a piece of furniture. I wanted to create a dialogue between natural and manufactured materials suggesting an apparent continuity between the disparate textures and materials so that pre-exiting boundaries become fused and appear as one.

Dimensions: W60cm x H120cm x D 40cm (irregular)
The Flesh of the World 3, 2015
This resin sculpture is part of a series titled 'The Flesh of the World', where the displaced rock casts have become almost body-like, zoomorphic re-formations that take on living qualities, transcending their geological origins. They are cave-like voids suggestive of internal and intimate body spaces: flesh or growing matter, searching out new life.
