My work is practice based installation. My process is one of collecting, selecting & reusing mundane objects and materials that have been put to one side or discarded. I am particularly interested in the poetry of the ordinary object & its syntax. It is possible to transform the ordinary into something wonderful that belies and transcends its origin. I often use illumination as part of the construction. This is a mix-up process of assemblage - the constructed objects becoming, by their inherent pre-use, their own family portrait. Grouping them gives a sense of their own sociability and internal history that is both self contained and reflexive, yet open ended as a social encounter.
