A fascination with states of flux, as translations of various physical states and the way things appear to flow in an unending series of fleeting moments of suspension, has been the inspiration behind all of my work since I moved to rural South Leicestershire three years ago. Attention to detail through the repetition of tiny forms and patterns of sound creates a feeling of obsessive tightness and thoroughness, tension and reproduction; a sturdy bond which contrasts with an anarchic sense of the boundless possibilities inherent in a loss of control: by offering a visual promise of movement - one which can never be fulfilled – the work brings the assembled objects to the brink of a motion, which would destroy them.

The installation has as its anchor a formal engagement with the Lightbox space, emphasizing the visual and the physical over the distractions of metaphor, description and narrative. The work consists simply in the translation of fragments of memory and emotion into material form, presenting encounters with slate, feathers, fingers, raw concrete and wax. The assembly has references and triggers for the viewer to experience notional action: travelling, placing, nipping, holding, resting, waiting, sweeping, wiping, co-existing, lasting, decaying.
