'Red Bridge': Mixed Media

While growing up paper, paints, glue and scissors were always readily available. This kind of mess wasn’t mess. It was absolutely allowed and encouraged, and as a result, my brother and I were often to be found in the kitchen, either on or under the table, busy making and drawing. I think this is why I feel a strong connection between the creative processes that I am now engaged in and with my early experiences of play. Indeed, playfulness itself is a prerequisite - a tool for exploration. 

'Apple Green': Mixed media

Resting: Bronze, edition of 5, 20 x 45 x 28 cms

I am seeking to attain a vitality and tension in the movement of the piece. As I work I keep my attention on the progress, watching for that moment when the piece begins to take on its own presence. I then allow it to progress down its own path, kind of listening to it, perhaps flowing more from the subconscious than the conscious mind. So I am striving to be open to the drama of the work before me. The challenge is to remain sensitive to the direction as it unfolds.

In a state of jazz

Time to shift gears away from science and into music. I play jazz flute and piano and when I read this interview with Branford Marsalis  (sax player who led the Tonight Show band for Jay Leno), it connected with some thoughts I’ve been mulling over about the metal art world. I’ll start with the excerpt and comment at the bottom:“You put on old records and they always sound…See More
