The Projected Kitchen | 2016
Carved and constructed wood
Installation - sizes variable

The kitchen is for me analogous to the studio, an experimental environment which can be both creative and destructive, comforting and dangerous. In my recent carvings referencing archetypal forms and structures – shelves, tables, vessels, spoons – I am exploring the terrain between drawing and sculpture.  Using two-sided relief to compress space and create flattened overlapping forms, I aim to produce an illusion of depth while imposing a specific point of view.  The use of wood , warm and traditional, is offset by perceptual contradictions intended to encourage exploration of objects and space.
