The forms realized in this presentation of work have come about through my experience of working in a foundry in Bogota, Colombia.

The ferocity and raw power of the casting process is reminiscent of existing forces in nature; tectonic shifts, and volcanic activity. As a result, the concept of the work changes from being merely an object, to being part or element of a significant process.

This change of thinking, stepping back away from the finished object and focusing on the processes that went into it’s realization, is a significant development for me, a departure from existing thinking and a move towards a process led form of investigation.

During a recent trip to South America I had the opportunity to research large scale metal casting in a foundry in Bogota, Colombia. The processes involved in realizing the final work are compelling and fascinating; the tools, the materials and the transformation of the metal.

Since returning back to London I am continuing the research working with a commercial foundry and exploring the material Iron.

This current body of work is an investigation into the space around the finished object, an exploration of the processes that go into making the “finished” piece.
