My work investigates form and is predominantly sculptural, however photography, video, music and performance also play an important role within my practice. A long career spent in construction constantly influences the nature, direction and form, which the work takes. The crux of the sculptural work involves the diversion of stock construction materials from their intended purpose, divesting them of their utilitarian identities and subsequently configuring them into sculptural forms. These forms are unplanned and spontaneously created, however each addition or adjustment is also a considered act, relying on an imbedded knowledge and an innate sense of form. Also through film and musical performance – again using construction materials - I investigate the inherent aesthetic contained within mundane materials and practices
