Private view: 15th February.
Official opening: Thursday 1st March from from 7-9pm.
Works will change over the lifetime of the exhibition and will begin with the following pieces of work:
Some objects are idolised, others are used every day and not fully appreciated. Objects we buy, surround ourselves with and throw away have a personality of their own. Much like people, objects are altered by their surroundings, purposes and shapes.
All the drawings are created with oil pastel on either white of coloured paper. Drawings are glued onto thrownaway cardboard and then cut-out to give the relief or 3D effect.
I created a piece of work which I’ve submitted for potential inclusion in the “Drink and dial” exhibition at the Wilson William’s gallery. I should learn in February if they want to include it in the show.
The theme of the show is “Drink and dial” the phenomena whereby, when drunk, people make telephone calls they later regret.
Each drawing is a life-size study of a skeleton I keep in my flat, drawn in black oil pastel and painted with kids poster paint, then sealed with PVA.
I’ve been experimenting with mounting drawings on cardbaord, which I’ve done with this work and with pieces like “Deconstruction of a jab pad”.

Deconstructing football boots, jab pads and dancing rubber gloves; every object deserves some attention, 15 minutes of fame.
What would we be without objects? They fill our lives.
Pretty and practical, roses and daises are normally used as symbolic objects but they deserve a bit of attention and recognition in their own right.
Guerrilla zoo presents “The experiment “.
Friday 20th October 2006, 8pm-4am @ The Corsica Arts Club, London.
The theme of the show was “the experiment”, I chose to experiment with my drawing and the way in which I depicted and worked with my subject matter.
I’m interested in depicting characteristics of the objects I am drawing, a major characteristic is the way in which an object functions and/or is constructed. By using a number of drawings Images from the exhibition to show the disintegration of the football boot.
