We have a “ broken treaty with living things”,

Ian Sinclair

 

These new pieces grow out of a continuing fascination with natural things that continue their “ordinary’ lives despite us.

 

 I produce ‘artificial fossils’, these unloved stinging nettles, docks and insects are pressed sealed in resin and paint,  sanded back to reveal their morphology.

 

 We commemorate our heroes in bronze but see the life and death of plants and animals as unremarkable. Dead bees are cast in bronze or ossified in resin and presented on metal

stands of lead and steel.
