Kilkenny fossil limestone, stainless steel and portland roach 45cm x 35cm x 180cm
"My work is mainly in stone, occassionally incorporating iron and stainless steel, materials which I feel are elemental, hard and uncompromising. This is fundamental to my work. Wherever the idea comes from, natural forms, heavy industry, words, politics, I strive to imbue the piece with an elegant solution. It is important to me that the viewer feels invited to touch, to feel the contrasting textures, to engage with the physical form as well as the intellectual idea. There is a continuous process of exploration, of developing ways to interpret ideas, to challenge the commissioner and viewer."
