Personal statement

I am a practicing artist working within the domain of sculpture today. In order to understand and teach this, I undertake two complimentary levels of research:

Firstly through practice based research in the production of work itself. This work stems from an interest in notions of ‘production’, additional to that is how I got there, i.e process, and finally the notion of ‘sculpture’ as the overarching concern. All three components are essential and are continually played with and re-assessed. This work has outputs in independent galleries, solo and group shows, open call submissions, events and symposia.

Secondly through qualitative research that explores alternative methods of production and training, and the lineage of making in contemporary sculpture. Through discussion with Sir Anthony Caro and his assistants, my current project ‘Artist Boss’ explores alternative methods of training, outcomes of the pedagogic relationship between artist and assistant, and consider the affect, if any, on British sculpture (1960-present day).
