I work with physical and perceptual phenomena intending to communicate directly and intuitively with my audience. The essential reason to be of each piece is usually a comparative functional relationship between constrained elements. An embedded concept like a physical muscle or the workings of a machine. The roots of this flow consistently from work done over many years. A piece is a nexus of constrained phenomena anchored by a passion for colour, light and movement.

I like to think that I work upon the visual perceptual frontier and with each successive piece I extend that frontier. Once I have a decisive worthwhile concept I need to construct the piece to see what will happen. Each piece is an experiment. I like to think what I make is to a degree absolutist and a clear statement of often simple phenomena. I am not seeking a social context or comment or to illustrate a political posture. I am seeking with each successive piece a clear step forward to extend the frontier of visual passion and experience.
