This work 150cm x 60cm, is built upon a starting plan of an isometric grid plotted onto the board. This grid is the foundation framework from which a world can begin to appear. Using the grid as reference, imagination is allowed to take shape and a design occurs almost spontaneously. A meditative construct which flows point to point.. or star to star.
Captured in a 1mm and 1.5mm drill. LED backlit and black satin lacquered.
‘Genesis 1- The Matador’
122cm x 95cm 2015. Various drilling 1mm-3mm in ACM board.
Lines extrapolating from several points radiate and overlap to form a random grid framework where the inevitable flow of life takes hold and conjures form and shape almost at it’s own behest. Is the artist in control of the outcome?
‘Visions of Omnipolarity’
122cm x 95cm. 3mm ACM, LED’S. 2016.
122cm x 122cm. 6mm MDF, walnut lacquered. Various sized drilling-angled L&R.
A dive into the structural world of repeated overlapping spiral construction. Four spirals are built on top of each other from the centre, radiating arms of light and shade emphasized by drilling at defined angles from both left and right, the spiral arms appear and disappear as the viewer moves before the piece.
122cm x 60cm . 1mm drilling, various angles. 3mm ACM board, translucent blue lacquer.
A vision of a beautiful seascape, polarized, electrified, ribbons of light energy crisscross the sky..
122cm x 122cm. Mostly 1mm drilling with some 2mm.
The drilling fills the background in waves of randomness and signs of attempted structure from which ribbons of solidity appear to embrace the newly formed spheres.
800mm x 550mm. 1mm drilling @ various angles
4mm MDF, Liquid copper finished.
The tumultuous workings of life, but there is order hidden in the stars… One of the recent pieces focussing on the left / right brain: order and chaos, yin yang…from a carefully plotted isometric grid, some of which is allowed to remain, organic form can flow to fill the structure.
