Following in the tradition of “direct metal” sculptors, I use, modify and reshape existing industrial parts. This work is an investigation of shapes and compositions that satisfy my creative vision.
The handling of form has been influenced by over thirty years of architectural practice in South Africa and Canada.
The following photographs illustrate work done over the past seven years while in London, Toronto, Johannesburg and France.
My work was exhibited at Burgh House in 11/08 in Hampstead, London, in the 2010 Summer Salon, First Canadian Place, Toronto, in an exhibition with the Urbanite collective the Coningsby Gallery, London W1T in 2010, and at the Solstice Salon at the Pentimento Gallery, 1164 Queen Street East Toronto in December 2011.
