‘Cloud’ found me working in a broad range of materials and media, including plastic mesh, wire, and even video. The accumulation of material and gesture that typically characterises my work, here engages the viewer’s senses in an evocative experience. Like a cloud, as the exhibition’s title implies, the work might suggest an interpretation, but at the same time may obscure a clear view.

I made this by winding clockwise and counter-clockwise springs from galvanised wire, weaving these into each other, and then weaving another pair of opposing springs perpendicularly through the first set.

This work appeared slightly incongruous, but I felt that after all the shifting and diaphonous works, I needed something solid and honest. The central section of the door handle was polished smooth and flat by hand.
