Sculpture can prove a lengthy process. Despite being inspired by velocity and speed, each piece can take months, if not years to complete. So, inspired by the life-hack of Auguste Rodin, I began taking photos of my work; a developmental short-cut which provided space for creative elaboration and helped jump-start a temporarily stalled momentum.
These photos are digitally re-imaged and then drawn onto, allowing me to envisage new sculptural possibilities. They are then placed on customised aluminum – often treated with automotive lacquer and cut into dynamic, angular shapes – before being embellished with paint. The final result is an independent body of work: a two-dimensional outcome of my three-dimensional practice that has become integral to the latter’s ongoing vitality and development.
