During my sculpturally active years (88-91) I have almost
been entirely concerned with the use of the man-made object. Two
groups of sculptors in whom I have an interest, the British ie. Cragg,
Allington, Woodrow and the Americans ie. Koons, Steinbach,
Mccollum, use the manufactured object within their sculptural
practice. The British object sculptors use their materials with
nostalgia, seeing them as carriers of our collective cultural memory,
whilst the Americans have a nihilistic approach, seeing their
materials as inert, emptying the product of meaning. I wish to
explore both these attitudes towards the object, the metaphorical
and the rhetorical in the anticipation of discovering some of my
own relationships to the manufactured world. As the work will be
experimental numerous pieces will be produced. They will
ultimately be of a human scale with the use of furniture and
building materials.
