Statement

my sculptural work centres around the physical built environment, based on architecture observed from the places I have visited. The Duncairn Arts Centre - which is located in the heart of Belfast’s troubled past, is where my new Parian installation is to be showcased. The work, which is a series of asymmetrical Parian slip cast houses in white and grey, represents both sides of the community which are ultimately just two variations of the same endemic life. I hope to challenge the viewer to consider what lies within the external structure, to penetrate the superficial and to look beyond what is seen from the outside.  Echoing our progression, but a reminder that there is still more to achieve.
