‘spaceman’ bronze and patinas 1995 always been fascinated by the space race and the spaceman outfit is something that has inspired me to make work, this work is derived from castings of household items.Materiality sometimes evokes censure, but it is sometimes a celebration. In other words, the use of material makes the viewer consider and re-align its suitability, purpose and above all, actual worth. I intend my works to admit the fascination of material objects, but they ask us to question the depth and consistency of our values.
