The following images are a selection of my ‘studio experiments’ that have been generated over many years. They clutter up various surfaces in my studio: a collection of false starts, dead ends, jumping off points and accidental discoveries some of which, one day, may lead to new work.

They first made a public appearance as ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ in the exhibition ‘Treasure’ at Ardo Studio Gallery in 2010.

More recently I have also shown them in glass display cabinets in two exhibitions (‘Sum of the Parts’ & ‘Shared Practice’) – as a means of providing a more intimate glimpse into my working practice.
