Silver Piece (British Art Medal Society Commission)

I am interested in making work which makes use of the particular nature of its context, whether that is within the physical location of a landscape, or the material and cultural conditions of the foundry or gallery. I aspire to make objects which do not...

Towards the Perfect Circle

Since returning from living in Rome in 2005 I have becoming increasingly interested in negotiating ideas of influence, particularly in national, cultural and geographical terms. A year spent living abroad had led me to question what ‘Englishness’ and ‘authentic’ might mean in such a plural,...

Bronze Length

'Bronze Length' involves a sense of locational specificity, though of a cultural rather than geographical nature. It is a limited edition, but rather than being composed of a number of identically-cast shapes, its edition is its total length of 25 feet, which can be subdivided...

Bronze Ground

'Bronze Ground' is variable in its dimensions, and is distributed by being brushed over the area of floor, which it exclusively occupies. Its surface therefore bears the marks of its making, although, like the sands of a beach, its surface appearance is temporary. At the...

Right Arm Cast in Sand

I made 'Right Arm Cast in Sand' on a beach close to my parents’ house. Its form was dictated by the shape of my arm as I drew it out of the hole in the sand, and of the nature of the sand itself, which...

Front and Back View series

In 2006 I completed my residency at Headington School in Oxford, where as well as teaching I continued my own research into the problem of seeing and believing, and the mechanics of representation. I noticed that a silhouette of a figure could be read as...

Royal College of Art: MPhil work

I completed my MPhil at The Royal College of Art, London, in the summer of 2004. My thesis, Cloud: A Schematic of Appearance, examined cloud as a case study for seeing and believing. I analyzed the relationship between the imagination and visual experience, the use...

British School at Rome drawings

In September 2004 I moved to Italy to take up the Sainsbury Scholarship in Painting and Sculpture at The British School at Rome. During my MPhil I had also developed a digital archive of images taken from various sources which served to both inform and...

Essay: Studies in a Second Hand

What kind of critical framework can be set up to make sense of the intuitive aspect of making drawings? Can the ‘intuitive’ be scrutinised, while allowing drawings to maintain their own visual independence? How might this investigation relate to other disciplines that produce work by...

This postcard is constructed from two collaged postcards. On the front is a photograph by Jean Meziere from his 1985 series Echoes: A Vision of the American Southwest, and the text on the back and front is from a 1960s card describing a Kiva- a...
