My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.
Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.
210mm x 297 A4 glass clip frame, acrylic paint
Edition of 60 signed and numbered copies, each unique
The clip frame backing board is marked in pencil, mapping geometric shapes and proportions relational to its dimensions and the four slot apertures. Colours are emotiomaticaly selected and combined, in rhythm to the mantra internalised, and applied at the intersection of lines. The final composition grows from the weight of the glass and the gentle squeeze exerted by the frames clips, spreading and connecting colours between the two surfaces. Made to be displayed in transitional spaces, to remind the viewer to be fully present.
Note on viewing: Each painting is its own universe, select one. Breathe slowly and deeply whilst observing the painting. Gradually let your gaze go out of focus. Meditate on the centre of the painting, allowing its geometry to bring your mind to a state of balance.
Like most people, I collect stuff—letters, postcards, photographs, notes—anything that is special to
me and that I do not want to dispose of. Naturally, this adds clutter to my daily life.
Timecapstool is a box with a narrow slot on the top. It is designed to hold ephemera, which can easily be inserted through the slot, and at the same time function as a stool, a step, or a side table.
Once something has been posted into the slot, there is no easy means to retrieve it: the stool is sealed on all sides. Over time, the ephemera inside becomes more important than the stool. At this point the Timecapstool can be smashed open like a piggy bank.
The stool is not intended to be opened for five years. The longer it is used, the more valuable and interesting the contents will be when eventually retrieved by the owner.
