small sculpture of bending figure on pipe

All of my sculpture work is unmonumental in that it is small scale. It is often made out of found objects and uses assemblage or combinage techniques with text.

Projects I’ve been involved in over the years often include work made for performance as well as site-specific installation:

domestic mottoes

Objets-textes

Lover’s Letters

In my studio I mostly work with works that could fit in your hand and many are made to be held and handled.  Stoneware clay is moulded into a human form and scaled to a domestic found object, creating a dialogue between Subject and object. The figures are often partial or fragmented and relate to the body and performance.

Small Promethean Acts is an up coming installation which combines many of these works with audio and video.

Other small scale assemblage projects like Objets-textes combine small found objects with writing and poetry. They propose that we ‘think through things’, exploring our relationship with our physical world and the way in which words are performed on the 3-dimensional plane. Installations of over 100 pieces have been shown around the country.
