Personal profile

Biography

I have lectured in Sculpture since 1996 and my studio practice is run from Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.

Research and Practice

Sculptural practice and thought allows a very real exploration of the physical world. All its aspects fascinate me. My work is fuelled by diverse sources and open patterns of thought. Current work explores extremes of visibility, experience, material nature, location and situation. 

Time’s relationship with matter is a recurrent interest and has been explored recently through film loops, re-questioning a given material or object’s physical state, longevity, use and nature. These aspects of the material realm were also the starting point for Ironfield (developed in collaboration with Gordon Munro). Recently showing the multi configurable cast iron installation 'Cloud Dialogue' is the initial part of this ongoing project.

Exploration and intuitive thought can unveil unique knowledge for the artist. The world is beautifully complex, diverse and effectively endless. Through physical, material and studio research, I hope to move closer to seeing or experiencing something of that which is normally hidden in its fabric.
