As beings we seem to find it impossible to resist seeing human forms in the objects and landscape that surrounds us. A wooden peg becomes a doll, trees wave their arms and rock formations are ‘old men’.
As a figurative sculptor it is the desire to harness this inherent trait that informs my current work. Through experimentation with new materials, the use of found objects and the arrangement of ready-mades I am exploring the possibilities of breaking down the figure into fundamental elements and paring back representations of form into something more symbolically human.
