At the most basic my work can be said to centre round a theme of aided reflection, in the sense that I am not just narrating my own thoughts or ideas within these pieces but rather I want to make physical forms that unlike traditional sculpture invites one to partake in the imagery in a physical and not just abstract capacity, the articulating of ideas is just as important as hearing of other perspectives and I feel this is lost when thinking about sculpture in the traditional sense.
There is a look but do not touch attitude that for me must go if the widely spoken claim of the need for art to be more accessible is to ring true. Art in my view although to the dismay of a lot of artist is quite aligned with elitism in the sense that most art works of notable standing are based often in town and business centres or outward of the city as a whole in locations mostly very hard to reach for those of lower backgrounds who neither see it as a hobby or a profession, for what I cannot blame them if there daily driver is not to see a manifestation of ones ego.
It is with this understanding I set out to make forms that however abstract or not must have the function of not falling victim to this discourse. I want to make works that serve to entrain those who are privileged enough to be entertained but aid those who are not, be it in a capacity that encourages discussion and action.
