Two examples: as Principal of Freeman College I received a personalised ‘message card’ attached to a beautiful bunch of flowers given to me by two students. The flowers have since died and the sentiment of their message will have changed with the passing of time but the card has inspired the development of a sculpture that whilst not organic per se mirrors an organic form that represents an organic development.
piece was germinated by my finding a receipt that was given to my father
when he had to pay a pound for the privilege of visiting the wash room
in Harrods. His shocked face is forever imprinted in my memory when I
recall him handing me the paper slip after his visit but it is also now
frozen in time in the piece that I created using its basic dimensions as
the multiplier for the shapes that evolved into its basic form.
I see my pieces as forms that let the viewer into an opening or a
possibility for a reaction and in that respect they become the drivers
of dialogue that allow the moment of importance to live on in the art
