Also in 2002 I spent some time attempting to capture recognisable form.

These were the first examples, and with both of these works I discovered how the light gave a life to the drillwork, in a dark room the figures seem to float like formed of stardust.


‘Protection’ 2001-2. 

Protection was inspired by  a trip to Indonesia, some of the stone statues there exuded great spirit and felt almost alive in amongst the tropical foliage.



‘Amy’ 2002.

50cm x 40cm, 1mm drilling, black lacquered 4mm mdf. compact fluorescent bulb.


This work was the first where I attempted to capture fine detail of the facial features with a small drill. As the work was also small, I had to use a compact low energy light bulb for illumination.
