‘What if…? is a question that drives my practice.
What if I attach some string to this and let it swing back and fore? What if I paint the ends of a curved bit of metal red? Will it become a magnet? I take a detached, naive yet sincere approach which could be compared to lateral thinking. The results are often absurd.
In this body of work/play, many of the objects were found on the road; bits of metal, scaffolding, pigeon spikes, a broken chair. Using found or readily available materials is reflective of my suspicion of the idea of art as commodity as well as a sympathy for the Arte Povera movement of 1970s.
The process of art-making is more important to me than the end-product. Any objects that come out of it could be thought of as by-products.
