AThe use of particular materials in a work is sometimes a celebration, in other words, the use of material makes the viewer consider and re-align its suitability its purpose and above all its actual worth. The sculpture admits to the fascination of the material object though I seek to question the depth and consistency of our values.
All of the work is manufactured using recycled and sustainable methods of making, I have collected both natural and manmade materials and used them in juxtaposition to generate a vocabulary within the work, and my use of the formal aspects of the iconic
Architectural forms reflects the conspicuous consumption that our society produces. I intend the sculpture to identify notions of the classicism of consumption, ostentation and material value centred upon a cultural and spiritual identity The sculpture will capture classical form made from the used and useless, discarded relics of mass consumption-unwanted building materials-
My engagement with the urban environment is through witnessing how our buildings are subject to environmental changes.
The works reveal the nature of manufacture much as all my works are witness the materiality, I always believe that the materials should be appropriate to the concept and the ceramic works/building materials also reference civic pride. Nothing it seems is permanent and nothing lasts forever? In all the Architectural works I am excited by the way in which the materials appear to be permanent whilst looking fragile and temporary. This again seems to represent and mimic our own life experiences.
