I've just done my first 'Creative Catch-Up' with Jon Wright on BBC Radio Suffolk. This will be every Monday evening, just after the 7pm news. I was particularly excited to hear the jingles that Jon and the team had created for my segment - 'Prints-charming' was hilarious! If you were listening today, here's some of [...]
Great news from my neighbour just 10 minutes ago, my exhibition 'Void' that took place over the Easter weekend in Aldeburgh is in the local newspaper. My neighbour has kindly given me her copy. I had to retrieve it from under her sleeping cat so any ideas of fame and fortune have been put in [...]
This animation was created over the 3 day weekend and shows the growth of a concrete landscape that is made up from packaging that was brought along by participating audience.
Just got home after the last day of my exhibition, Void - The landscape of waste packaging at Caroline Wiseman's South Lookout Tower. What an amazing 3 days, wonderful weather (If a little cold), great conversations with an excellent audience of friends, family and friendly strangers. Excited how some of these chance encounters will turn [...]
Some photographs that my wonderful wife took last night of me setting up my exhibition and then sitting in an exhausted heap at the end of the installation. She really is an excellent artist assistant and much needed calming influence, where would I be without her...everyone should have one :)
Just got home after installing my exhibition at The Lookout Tower, Aldeburgh. Very tired, but excited too...remind me why artists do this ;)
Very pleased to see coverage in the East Anglian Daily Times and the Ipswich Evening Star today for my upcoming exhibition :)
In my exhibition at The Lookout, Aldeburgh next week I will be exploring issues surrounding waste packaging. What impact does this waste have on our world? Where does it all come from? As I mentioned in a previous post, the quantity of waste packaging per person in the UK is at a staggering 175kg a year. Only 25% is [...]
In my upcoming exhibition 'Void - The landscape of waste packaging' I use rubbish as the basis and form of my sculptures. I also use everyday concrete to create these molds from packaging. Throughout history artists have found beauty in the ugly and mundane and used the unwanted waste of others to create art. For [...]
I have made some of the signage for my upcoming exhibition. At least one of our cats likes it :)
As I mentioned yesterday my upcoming exhibition 'Void - The landscape of waste packaging' is all about the permanence of waste packaging in landfill. As a nation we produce some of the highest amounts of waste packaging per capita in Europe. Although many successful initiatives exist to promote the recycling of our waste packaging the [...]
In my upcoming exhibition called 'Void - The landscape of waste packaging' I have used concrete to create mini sculptures from the forms, shapes and patterns found in everyday waste packaging. Concrete is a product that we all come into contact with on a daily basis, used widely in construction because of its excellent structural [...]

A car rally in sunny Suffolk - perfection!
I was browsing a car boot sale at Friday Street Farm Shop, Suffolk, when I spotted this little suitcase. The colours are very much my kind of thing I thought, I bet I can't afford it. Looking up I saw an old boy approach. He obviously thought this item was a bit of rubbish to [...]
