Action and interaction form an integral part of my work, encompassing ideas of balance and potential, and the underlying notion of failure.
My concern in the works is not the finished structure as a sculptural object but the process of manipulating the elements, itself the act of making the work. Creating a situation of partial control, introducing effort, frustration and humour.
Alongside the larger scale works this interest in the relation between sculpture and performance acts as a catalyst for printmaking activities and bookworks.
