"I promised myself as a child, never to forget what it felt like to be a child - to dream and invest in the imaginary, the fantastic, the impossible.  My work is about trying to keep that promise."

Grand projects are dreamt up and an attempt to realise these visions is undertaken using whatever comes to hand.  Each project begins from a childhood game, story or dream, a search to recapture a remembered past with the tools, skills and knowledge of the adult one has become – an adult playing a child’s game much too seriously.

The resulting sculpture installations, films or drawings, though seemingly playful, elicit a poignancy that arises inevitably from the knowledge that the immense amount of effort lavished is expended in vain – for the desired goal is chosen because it is seemingly unattainable.  Yet this factor is also what gives the investigations their emotional charge and hope.
