It resonated with me because although I am keen to experiment using contemporary technology, at the heart of my work is an age-old exploration into the nature of being. Specifically, the parallel states of constancy and change that characterise nature.
So Grayson Perry’s analysis seemed (unsurprisingly) to apply to me.
One of my favourite sculptures is Rodin’s ‘female torso’which is housed in the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, and this became the inspiration for ‘Chinese Whisper’. I took that idea and executed it differently, using the contemporary techniques I have developed over the last six years or so, and technology that means the work can only have been made in this century.
To date, there are 9 handmade, limited edition versions of Chinese Whisper; coming in various sizes and materials including nickel plate, acrylic, copper plate and stainless steel. A beautiful interior or garden sculpture.
