This residency, which took place in January, was a fantastic opportunity to experiment with a new way of working inspired by my earlier Improvisations exhibition.  I scavenged and collected discarded objects and materials from the beach, the market, the recycling centre and the scrap yard.  First I photographed them in different arrangements, then I started combining them, casting from them and adding different lines and elements such as stainless steel, concrete and paint to them.  The resulting works were shown at Hogchester Arts Summer Exhibition and Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer.
