My sculpture is part of a research project into the role visual arts plays in creating unique biography, exploring a child's methodological approach to learning and construction. My recent approach to sculpture aims to clarify and extend the relationship between my twenty year practice and continuing themes of self and built environments. The juxtaposing of physical vernacular forms (built environments) against psychological and metaphysical vernacular forms, against psychological metaphysical elements creates an autobiographical framework. The artworks are viewed in the context of abstractionist aesthetics.
