I walk my neighbourhood most days as a form of catharsis. Each time I take a new route, keeping an eye out for discarded materials and collecting as I go. When I was a child my parents manufactured sandstone garden products, transforming raw materials into solid forms. I emulate this process with neighbourhood detritus, creating sculptures using DIY construction methods common in alternative and sustainable architecture. Recontextualised, these found materials are given new purpose as anthropomorphic and architectural hybrids – a temporal monument to a time and place.

We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
