Sculpture works use assemblage or combinage techniques with small found, domestic objects. Sculpture work uses unmonumental scale and concinnity – a harmonious arrangement or fitting together of different parts referring to a studied elegance or style  –  with a twist.

Objects and forms are often combined with writing, dialogically producing surprising connections between things and ideas. All work is exploratory and often destined for a larger installation of small parts, combined and sited with film, sound and performance.

Some Past Projects:

domestic mottoes

Objets-textes

Small Promethean Acts is a large group of small works of stoneware clay that is moulded into a human form and scaled to a domestic found object. The figures are often partial or fragmented and relate to women, art history, and the body.

More information here on the installation project which combines many of these works with recorded domestic stories: small promethean acts

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 performance of words are performed on a 3-dimensional plane. Installations of over 100 pieces have been shown around the country.
