artist's statement

<< Previous page

My practice is founded on a belief in clear and effective visual communication with a relevant outcome. R ather than imposing an unrelated idea onto a place or audience I prefer to respond uniquely and appropriately.

A key factor in my practice is flexibility of approach and appropriateness of response - a collaborative project to create a large-scale artwork around Birmingham's coach station is currently being fabricated. Previous projects have included the creation of a screen-based work responding to the life of a hospital pharmacy, the construction of a computer database of discarded items at an old museum site, production of a printed guidebook of very short walks to view mosses, and the launching of hundreds of toy parachutes into the atrium of a BBC office at its opening ceremony.
