Personal Statement


I may be post-modern, if ‘post-modernist’ is the label applied to those who draw, somewhat irreverently, from an homogenised past, and are no longer 'shocked by the new'. I may, however, lack sufficient irreverence. I have been occupied with an 'impure co-mingling' of photography and ceramics; attempting to find meaning in their (obvious) differences and (less obvious) common goal - that of 'alchemically' making permanent transitory impressions, of light and touch respectively. The result, so far, has been several series of 'shallow sculptures' which I call photo/ceramic pictures - dislocated murals reminiscent of mosaics, tombstones and icons. More recently I have also been making two and three-dimensional collage, learning from an incorporated lack of premeditation. My chief influences might include relief sculpture, roadside shrines and 'kapelice', Schwitters, Rauchenberg, and the journey of art through the twentieth century.
