Wall Hung Reliefs
These assemblages are the result of putting together different components, and pieces, I have created out of natural materials such as wood slate, stone, metal and leather, with some added object trouve’, such as bits of old watches. Each tiny piece is cut, carved, sanded, dyed, textured or Patinated. Using a limited palette of carefully chosen colours, I orchestrate the juxtaposition of shape, and textures Intuitively, into these contemporary panels.
Out Of The Dragon Series.
Every time I have lived away from Wales I have pined for my homeland-it is Hugely part of who I am. This series is about my feelings of heirieth and pride of my unique country with its stunning beaches, majestic mountains and prehistoric monuments to it’s up to the minute technology and industrious people
Sometimes an artist experiences a creative flow, which is like surfing a huge wave or riding a bicycle at speed downhill. Ideas seem to come from the stratosphere and you just have to go with it intuitively. This piece was very like that, but it doesn’t happen without months of making thousands of components that at the time, I knew I would use and trusted to my intuition to eventually tell me how.
The Slate Reliefs-
These are a continuation of my 3D work in slate and are about shape, shadow and the beautiful colours of the material.
