Vestige: a visible trace, evidence or sign of something that once existed.
In trying to capture remnants of the past I am dealing with fragile material, attempting to replace an idea with something tangible. Essentially a sculptor using glass and metal as my mediums after initially researching a project I work using clay and wax and from this modelling produce casts. In the last few years I have worked on a series of group sculptures where I try to encapsulate a specific moment in time-usually springing from a childhood memory;these recollections can be both intense and vague. I am attempting through my work to convey distant memories dealing with awkwardness and incomprehension, my characters seem lost, ostracized in their habitat. I look at the complex, social groupings and an individuals response to their society. This can result in a range of situations which may be farcical, distressing or both. The children in my work are trying to find their place in a complicated world in much the same way we as adults are..
