My sculptures, which I call ‘Juxtaposes’, show at times my playful sense of humour; my eccentric way of looking at society.
I realise I am an outsider. I shall always observe. I shall always be an intuitive artist who is responding more and more to global issues such as the environment, stress within our different social groups, global communications and how tradition has gone into commercialism.
To create my Juxtaposes, I first scour antique shops, antique fairs and auction houses to collect decadent ornaments, bone china, objet d’art, curios and quirky objects that take my fancy. Then, I juxtapose two or three ‘objet’ together. This may not take long as I am reacting to something I have observed over a long period of time. I could be stimulated by a passing conversation, a radio discussion, a news item, a joke, a word or an image. It will then take me perhaps several days to then give the work a name as this is as important as the sculpture itself.
Yet despite all, my heart sings in a quiet whisper.
