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.

Clip-frame Permutations
constructed from two sizes of standard
clipframes 24” x 36” and 18” x 24”
Each composition is created by reconfiguring the clip-frame backs and clip-frame glass. No components are cut.

The clipframe is the most ubiquitous, cheapest and minimal of all picture frames. Commonly used to protect cheap prints, photographs and certificates, a neutral support for its content. Void of content, the clip-frame becomes the subject. The reconfigured arrangements and compositions explore the materiality of shinny reflective glass and cheap pressed hardboard and the overlapping of the two.

Each arrangement consists of a number of configurations, on some the glass overhangs the hardboard back, and on others it fails to reach the edge. The three surface conditions: glass; hardboard; and the combination of glass and hardboard, align to reveal structured geometric compositions.
