Growing Black Molecule

Then, all of a sudden, the black molecule began to grow and grow.

Little Angels

Thinking about piazzas in Venice maybe or possibly outside a bunker in Berlin. Not a lot to ask for from life really.

Pepper Pot projection WHITE NIGHT BRIGHTON

The red sculpture to the left is the one that was chosen to be projected onto the Pepper Pot at Queens Park as part of the White Night Festival in Brighton this weekend (Oct 29). I presume it is on a show reel with lots of other pieces by other artists. The other one was the more literal interpretation that I actually created for the project. The organisers thought that the red of the chosen sculpture was more fitting with what they were doing. I did however make a short animation of the creation of the "pepperpot" sculpture before I realised that they couldn't project film. Lucky really as I now have a fully self contained art piece with an inclusive animation that can be shown on a small monitor next to it. Strangely enough the red sculpture also has an alter ego as one half of a 2 part sculpture including a cast iron figure of a Welsh miner.

ring a ring

Starting to maybe plan a large scale sculpture involving hundreds of little figures crowding across a floor all carrying their own little burden.

Figure with cosmic leanings

A short stroll through the countryside erupts into cosmic particles attacking with artistic leanings towards abstract expressionism.

Reach for the sky

A sculpture that has started to reach upwards but inevitably started to overbalance so had to have strutts added to stabalise it. I will eventually make one that reaches from floor to ceiling which seems a very small task up to Brancusi but then often gets delayed by me getting preoccupied with other concepts. The title comes from the 50's film with Keneth Moore about Douglas Bader the fighter pilot who during the war had to have his legs confiscated to stop him escaping. Kind of interesting to view a sculpture in this light.

interStella godess

A movement through time and space, a collection of particles that occasionally come together in human form and then in a million years or a millionth of a second become part of a planet.
Change is a function of the universe.

Shifting Boundaries update

particularly enjoyed the sculptural installation just inside the door with the video showing it creeping around a house. That was great, really uncanny. Spoke to me about the way in which art is a bit out of place in the home and the need to make it can come to seem like a malevolent presence."

This appeared on an art blog recently. A critic was commenting on the Shifting Boundaries exhibition.

Shifting Boundaries, Doorway sculpture

Doorway : (2011).

(a doorway becomes a symbol for entry and exit, an opening which leads us through from one space and dimension to another; a portal).

Doorway, which is on exhibition at the Phoenix Gallery in Brighton throughout May, is a site specific work that deals with the concept of inside and out. In its essence it will be more about the movement between the two. The doorway is a set structure that the amorphous sculpture moves through between the two sides, using it both as a support mechanism as well as a framing device. Pictures of a
living room are used as part of the jopinted structure's surface. The pictures incorporate artifacts and scenes from the artist's personal life. The piece includes a TV which is constantly showing a film of the structure actually moving around the original living room space that was photographed to create its "skin". This film acts as a memory of the sculptures existence outside of the exhibition space. How we view reality and the way that we see the world around us is brought into question.

orbiting black hole

This will be a part of a 6 piece sculpture which will probably be shown together on a plinth.
