"The memorial losses are beyond grasp. But I know of them because of the vividness of a few remembered details and the cartoon like quality of the scene that is spare of living texture."
(The Time of Memory, Charles E. Scott)
The objects I make are 'cartoon-like' and don't accurately represent the source. They are without colour or texture - ghostly, translucent and unreliable in their physical strength and visual quality.
Recreating somewhat banal/insignificant objects (the pipes and skirting in the corner of a room or a teacup) in a time-consuming process draws attention to their 'everydayness', elevates the ordinary items that feature in our lives.
I create these theatrical/animated objects that can't function in reality - devoid of their primary function, that collapse in the real world - hopefully with humour.
