THE OBJECT OF SPACE is my utopian reordering of the architectural spaces that I encounter into vibrant containers of space. Inspired by the seeming energy & potential of these ordinary spaces I have re-imagined them, placed boundaries around them, compressed them and divided them. Hard edges and materials are softened by playful colours and juxtapositions. Multiples and layering emphasise the point: that space is fun, full of potential and ripe for the imagination.
Perspex is my material of choice. I see it as paint in a solid state: pigment suspended in sealed acrylic. Opaque-gloss red is as red as red cans be, and frosted white becomes dense and tactile. The viewer is invited close to, in and around the new objets d'Espace.
I love the ubiquitous cube and its permutations; so simple and useful that it is everywhere that humans are.
