About

A hankering to master simple line drawing, initially in two dimensions, quite quickly and perhaps unusually, became a three dimensional challenge.. Wire and steel are the ideal materials, offering  the flexibility of drawing media with an ability to self-support. The outcome is  a metal menagerie. Now, up-cycling  enters the equation, the urge to make use of no longer wanted materials bringing  a different feel.

The work, explores the confused relationship between humans and other animals in which the latter are simultaneously admired, worshipped and invested with magical powers and yet also slaughtered as sport or the subject of purported scientific interest, but ultimately controlled and destroyed.
