The Buzz

Monday, September 20th, 2010

When The Buzz arcade in Coventry City Centre closed about a year ago, a friend of mine Alex was helping the owner with the clear out – he invited me around for a nosy and of course I could not refuse. The arcade was decorated as a homage to Christmas all year round, so there was all sorts of ‘stuff’, which the owner said I could help myself to. Coventry people are incredibly generous and open to possibillities. I took photos and tried my best to be selective in my choice of objects to take back to the studio. I took away a selection of plastic Happy Millenium signs, christmas decorations, a plastic angel which plays music, machine reels and buttons and a flashing sign. The above image is a juxtaposition of two of the objects, which I have also filmed in motion.

This work marks the earlier phase of the House of Lines work, which I began in my previous studio space and reworked in my new one. It was a breakthrough when I began to group and classify my work, suddenly it became apparent that lines were inherently of interest to me – straight, crossed, scrambled and what happens when a line is no longer a line…

My Studio: My Playground

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

My studio, at Coventry Artspace, is hugely important to my artistic practice. I mostly spend time creating work, taking it all apart, documenting and staring into space (not always in that order) and most importantly questioning, adding to, developing, reflecting and reinventing the process’s personal to me, in my life as an artist.

Previous Studio

When I moved from a smaller space to a bigger one at Coventry Artspace, the process marked a new phase of self discovery and the re-assessment of ‘live’ sculptural work/assemblages.
