I make strongly coloured sculptures inspired by issues, objects and spaces around me, using a wide range of materials and hand, machine and digital techniques. I scavenge from my surroundings then play with and transform my ‘finds’ in the studio. Recently I have been making work inspired by looted objects from the 19th century.
After growing up in France and Belgium, I studied Architecture and Social/Political Studies at Cambridge University and Fine Art at the Byam Shaw School of Art. Solo and group shows include Unit One Gallery and Workshop, London; Beckenham Place Mansion with BoLee Gallery; Hastings Contemporary; Leighton House Museum; William Benington Gallery; University of Leeds; Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer; Royal Academy; National Gallery; Jerwood Space; the RIBA; and the Royal Society of Sculptors; Sanyi Wood Sculpture Museum Taiwan, Brooke Benington, Studio Block M74 in Mexico, Hengshui, China. For my recent exhibition at Electro Project Space, Hastings I was awarded a Project Grant by Arts Council, England. I have just completed a seven-year term as President of the Royal Society of Sculptors.
