My art tends to be concerned with the way our cognition shapes reality. In this piece I am interested in the implied curve we perceive in what are actually straight lines. This particular piece is a sort of reversed take on my usual riff, in that I’m normally drawing attention to how our minds impose categories upon a chaos – this time a continuum (albeit not chaotic) is implied from discrete lines.

In this particular location, I designed the geometry to be in sympathy with the patio area, in juxtaposition to the garden beyond. I am also enjoying the light play, and toying with cultural notions about masculinity and femininity in the bringing together of craft and maths.
