The doctrine attributed to Pythagoras was “all things are numbers.”
This doctrine has directed my artistic output for the past 6 years. It has focussed upon me that art might be found within numbers. However, within my work there is a deep sense of process, not the printmaking process or the assembly process but an unknown process that I believe I have no control over. This process like nature is organic; indeed, nature exerts a continual influence over my work. And, in turn, I have been able to draw upon this process through my knowledge of geometry and mathematics as the main constructive aid by which my ideas acquire visible form.
After graduating with a BA (Hons) Sculpture Degree in 2007 and thereafter with a MFA Degree 2008 at Gray’s School of Art I began both constructing and working from my “Cowden Studio” premises. My work has been shown in both solo and group exhibitions throughout the UK and purchased by collectors both nationally and internationally.
