Excentrifical is one of s series of pieces that explores the dynamism of steel. The use of colour was an interesting development; the paints are Oneshot from Wrights of Lymme and are matt enamels. The steel was forged and welded. The idea is inspired by centrifugal, excentrifical, gravitational, magnetic, quantum forces and Heat. The quickening of nature through heat comes to mind.
The Lines or Cats Whiskers are currently on show at Hannah Peschar's Garden Gallery and other versions of the evolving series at my own garden as well as some new ones for this years show at Fresh Air 2017 . They are a simple object that opens a myriad of meanings; to me they are Onethings that means Something. Simple exuberant and very long that shoot up; as linear rockets, or down, as lightning and are the stripped down essence of the new work . Originally they were left to rust but are now experiments in different colours sometimes incorporating Stainless steel with the rust.
When two Lines are placed together I think about 'parallel lines converging at infinity' and am inspired to make circles, and so it goes on.
I love the tensile strength of steel that allows such a tall line to tickle the sky and believe it will help people to look UP and not Down at their feet or phones.
