This is my piece submitted for the Bring Back the Dead exhibition at the Whitespace Gallery Edinburgh September 2013
Lucky Dip was born in 2013 under a wandering star from materials collected from a harvest of the shiny. The beloved brooch is child of Mark Mcleish whom worn it only once in the void of a shirt collar. Will be dearly missed but never forgotten and will always be my Wednesday child (full of woe). I wish you many new adventures. RIP
My work is about following each piece and being intuitively
open to an unspoken dialogue that spans a breath of choices and unknown exit points.
For me being an artist is an act of prosaic looking that feeds making for heterogeneous artefacts that confront the real world. I see my work as an anthology of objects, each being a unique incomplete tangible question that collects personal provenance. What stimulates my work and research is the ongoing amassments of stuff I collect and own. Obsessions happen without acknowledgement and my inventory shows no boundaries to objects, just an attraction that I find it hard to explain other than: we find each-other.
