My practice follows two paths. Drawings and sculptures, which are essentially abstract and process led, and sculpture which is more ideas led and externally referential.
My process led sculpture follows a similar process but occupies an expanded space and utilizes a much greater range of materials. I group these sculptures under the rubrik pooh sticks, as they are generated through a process of play, without preconceived outcomes, and as with the drawings I often allow outside agents such as chance or gravity to affect ‘wobbles’ or loss of complete control.
