2017 ARTSURUNGA Sculpture in the Park

The Weird Thing … Highly Commended

Bent Vinyl samples

I seem to have embarked on a gentle crusade to rid the world of trashy music on vinyl by trawling op shops and second hand markets for records, which I then turn into idiosyncratic “sculptures”.

Bubbling ideas and smoky afternoons in the clearing in the forest have produced a variety of strange constructs.

Here are some more samples and works in progress. 2016-11-12-21-09-182016-07-29-18-45-28

2014 Drawing on the walls of my late Mum’s house


Psychology aside … the new owners approved, the walls will be coming down anyway … so I turned the house into a PopUp Art Gallery … recycling, upcycling, indulging my latest obsession with poly foam packaging, masking tape and “Fiddly Bits” aerosol spray paint.

random twigs and mulch, florist stuff-for-keeping-things-in-their-place, cardboard apple box, polystyrene foam, gaffer tape, aerosol paint


Foam packaging from waste skip



based on the lagoon that I looked at every day for a year,
wrapped in an old wooden TV cabinet from the 60s

Found objects

Strange creature made from objects found on my daily walks with Freddie the dog … mounted on recycled packaging material painted silver

Brown-nose trophy

Seeds and bottle tops

Kentia palm seeds gathered in my garden,
juxtaposed with Bionade bottle tops from Berlin drinking spots

Found objects

toys, feathers, broken arrow, bits of fridge packaging …

  1. Love The Thing. Reckon my goat Boris would look good driven’ that. He loves cars and machines and he understands them to! I never had an intellectual goat before.
