These Goose and/or Duck feathered wall hangings utilise the nestling cone shapes to form a bed and nest. The spiral re purposes about 10 ft of ‘birdies’ and the wreath is made of 8 rings bound together for a 3 tier depth.
Stemming from ties, this blooming gathering of plaited, woven and stitched plastic, ribbon, rope, sponge and wool has been doused in glitter and varnish to resemble dew or resin secretions of this most irregular advertisment for nectar.
Planetoids with locations in poison lettering on vinyl records. Viewed en-mass like glass eyes, the iris skyline and dilated planets reflect their location in this ongoing documentation of 360 degree views.
The tidiest month; the trumpets and bells hail the long days, with Lillies like candle, lit in bright light.
Touristic haunts re-lived by painting in response to drawings made on site in mainland Greece and Sicily. Picture planes jutting out and suspended by a scaffold reminiscent of world heritage, often clad in such frameworks as they are partially restored.
Folded magazines with thousands of stamps pasted in as brackets along with train tickets to fashion a Doric column form. Resembling the early stages of the Fibonacci sequence, imagine Brancusi’s ‘Endless Column’ as a family tree.
Canary bird cage with 35mm film woven into the bars, stitched in place with empty coloured biro tubes threaded into spaces for doors. Yaught varnish applied to reinforce and 5 meter cable braided in cerise to compliment the blue cage. The tortoise shell like illuminated negatives cast a warm hue punctuated with the sprocket holes projected onto surrounding walls.
Tapestry based on drawing made on the Acropolis at Selinus in Sicily. It depicts the huge toppled drums of the Doric columns. Weft made from torn strips of my old shirts and bedding on a nylon twine warp. Colour was dictated by its tonal value resulting in a multi coloured state reminiscent of the building’s polychromed youth.
