Not content with capturing existing forms, there are some ideas that need to be expressed through my hands. The sculptor in me comes out and I use found objects to create sculptures that I then photograph. Specific light placement still plays a large part in these works as the shadows are often just as important as the sculptures themselves.
Below is are some series using cutlery.
Forkscape – My Forkin’ Family 2012
Forks arranged around a central fork symbolizing the artist, with the remaining forks symbolising the family with their backs turned, the odd person turning to face him on occasion.
Using found knives mounted on foamboard
A series using spoons to illustrate the Christchurch city skyline and the tails of the spoons symbolising the deep faultlines that run underneath the city.
