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.

Ballpoint Removed

In response to an invitation from Pentagram partner Angus Hyland in 2004 to create a work that uses a ballpoint pen, I removed the ballpoint from a pen and taped the ink reservoir directly to the gallery wall, allowing the ink to run slowly down the wall and create a thick line of dark blue ink.

Exhibited as part of the group show Ball Point in the Pentagram Gallery.
