I’ve called these mini installations, which vary in scale, my ‘assemblages’. Constituting a number of different pieces, they act as constellations – a number of parts coming together to make up the whole. They began life as a sort of ‘thinking wall’ – a wooden backdrop in my studio against which I could place and hang work to layer and arrange them, something that lends itself easily to my pieces as they often act as standalone works meant to interact with their surroundings. The assemblages, then, are a result of my experiments with layering, architectural structures, dividers and screens – they encompass a narrative, sometimes like the pages of an open book, at other times like a scattering of papers left upon a table. I like that idea that one could play around with them, move the pieces around and create a new narrative each time.
