Wall Sculptures

This exhibition demonstrates the movement from photograph through drawings to wall sculptures. The end result is a unique merging of sculptural form with painted surface.

All of my work has a figurative base: From photographs that I have taken, generally of people well known to me, I create reproductive drawings in pastels of the figures, gradually abstracting information that forms the image.

I experiment with various colour relationships, lines, thicknesses and shapes: These form the basis of three-dimensional wall-sculptures in wood, incorporating shaped, painted canvasses: Some of these sculptures are designed to incorporate lighting.
