This more diverse set of works is a relatively recent departure. They owe their genesis partly to the accumulations over many years, of the found objects and scrap yard delvings I use as assemblage components and partly in the desire to extend the language of my work to include the possibility of a more narrative treatment. Found and selected objects bring historical qualities and associations with another place and purpose. Other works emerge from tangential takes on the landscape constructions and so some have been derived in various ways from encounters with the landscape. I would say however, that the majority are improvised around found objects and their assemblage potential The resulting talismanic quality of these elements often drives the context and flow of the work where they can invoke questions about connection, narrative and meaning.
