Going Home and Other Stories
10 February – 2 March 2024
A piece of sculpture can be one subject when seen from a particular direction, but can change to another when the viewing angle is altered. My intention when making my work is to give viewers the reward of a surprise when they investigate the piece. Sculpture can have a series of horizons beyond which its world changes.

Presented in this exhibition with the framing and enhancement that is given to special objects, my pieces juxtapose more than one idea within themselves. The tension between seeing first one intention and then another gives the viewer a story with each one.
The works draw on a range of ways of sculpting the figure. Always it is the human body that carries meaning for me, and so I work and rework the different approaches to the making of my personages.
