My practice revolves around trees and timber, and our history of working with wood. The things we have built, the meanings we have imposed and the structures we have left behind. The works I construct are amalgams of specific techniques, materials, textures, and form. My practice is fuelled by a great interest in functional buildings, passage tombs, warehouses, drydocks, and sewage works. Unlike these useful buildings my works serve no practical purpose, they are combinations of past and present functions distilled into solid inert forms.
I work slowly using tools and processes that have changed very little since their inception. Employing techniques that leave the marks and the traces of the decisions made, a memory of both my actions of shaping and the materials act of growing.
