Gallery: Sculpture

Daybreaks
Steel, wood, pigment
16ft x 11ft x 10ft 
There is no front or back to “Daybreaks” as I hope the viewer will walk round it,
watching the interplay of the “rays” as they move past each other and the viewer.


Care
Steel, pigment
64 ins x 119 ins x 42 ins
I createdCare” to explore further the shape produced in “Next Stop Shibuya”, and the different challenge of a horizontal focus.

The arched shape suggested to me a recumbent person held up by a caring other, reminiscent of a “Pieta”.

Next Stop Shibuya
次は渋谷、渋谷
Installation at Sculpture Now 2016 at The Mount, Lennox
Painted Steel 9ft high, 5 ft x 5ft base

The outward curve of the two close-together elements of Next Stop Shibuya reminded me of being
on a train in Tokyo. When I was compressed into a railway car at Shinjuku station and then pushed
further in at each stop, finally hearing: “The next stop is Shibuya”, was a welcome announcement.

Secret

Pairs of people often present an outward public view of their interaction that is different from the private one they have between them. The two forms maintain a rigid separation and their outer-facing surfaces differ from those they share with each-another.
A whisper, a kiss...?

Colorfall
Polyurethane foam, wire, wood, cardboard, acrylic
43 ins x 60 ins x 48 ins
The layering of flows, as seen for example in rock formations, provides a record of the passage of time.  I use color to emphasize these layers and the associated flow of time; as well as accentuate the innate exuberance of the foam material, which I find difficult to suppress.

Private Space
Cinder block, wood plinth
