Much of my work is in the nature of an enquiry, (often at the periphery of my understanding), sharpening observation and awareness, a way of seeking in seemingly small and insignificant objects and actions, evidence of a more cosmic situation.
Installations, video footage and drawings reflect ideas of transience, change and repetition.They emerge from chosen or chance encounters, stimulating a process that allows work to evolve, as one process leads through accident or deliberation to another.
Working with elusive, sometimes insubstantial materials, there are underlying threads and concerns: 'measure', movement - in and through space, and the way in which the (often fragmented) things we experience and see daily are invested with wider implications and meaning.
An ongoing project - metron collaborative - was established with artist Annabel Ralphs in 2000, initiating residencies and exhibitions in which external agencies are sought and often closely involved.
unwrapping books extends this platform to provide opportunities for artists, music and dance practitioners to work with institutions, collections and books, including Oxford University Press, University of Oxford Botanic Garden and the Central County Library.
unwrapping books and metron collaborative have been supported by Arts Council England, Oxford Culture Fund and other international funding bodies.
