Twice Removed is a collection of recent work that considers the potential of found objects. The origin of the objects remain unknown and unsought, generating dialogue and associations beyond the objects intended use.
The sculptural works develop intuitively, constructed using magnets and string allowing for revision, modification and experimentation with catenary forms. The process is intuitive with constant review and interplay giving some pieces a provisional quality. The consideration of inferred and intrinsic value offer connections to industrial processes, economies, astral events, metallurgy and socio-political situations that may inform the work, or translate directly into a work.
