About

Apart from occasional forays into silicone, I work primarily with the most common construction materials – cement.  It has extraordinary versatility and a directness that allows for spontaneity.

I either use a base of metal armature on which mortar or ferrous cement is then layered.  Or work from clay cast or sometimes body casts.  I use colour pigment , fibrous materials and found objects for surface texture.

In the past I have worked in abstract and semi figurative forms but since 2010 I have been mostly working with  human form;  the intricate, delicate triangles that connect each  skeletal movement  to their projections and articulations ,on muscle to skin is a source of fascination . Using the body enables me to animate the small internal voices we all share.  To make a visual representation of the inner psyche, in all its beautifully flawed complexity. 

I have been privileged to teach in Phnom Penh and Kathmandu, it has been a revelation, both in forms of practice and as experiential learning from great artists.
