Fundamental to my sculptural process is an awareness of gravity as a persistent presence round us in the physical world: ordering and governing it. This awareness extends past considerations of balance and form to the far reaching extent that it becomes topical and even titular, being referred to in a series of works, Gravity Swimmers. These works are perhaps, as an expression, notional that gravity is an atheistic God surrogate, if one metaphysically considers that gravity is the universal medium through which we swim. This is the sculptural means for his expression of a scientific understanding that geologically and astronomically gravity imposes order on what would otherwise be a chaotic universe.
It is the invisibility that shapes the planets and fuses stars, maintains orbits, and governs galaxies.
Having some metaphysical equivalence to, and conversion with gravity, is medium; the very stuff that life is supported and surrounded by, air, water, amniotic fluid. It is this preoccupation that brought to life the series of works called buoyed and a-shebuoyed (a-shebuoyed is derived from amoeboid). Anthrobuoyed in Elm and exhibited together with Carbon Sync references the Anthropocene.
