创作声明

 

Subject matter for my work comes from my environment, sometimes focused on the post-war housing estates that are integral to the texture of inner London, where I have always lived. I am interested in the different styles of these buildings, both low and high-rise, in terms of their design, structure and sculptural qualities but also in what they represent within British society.

我的作品主题来源于我所身处的环境,有的集中在战后的政府经济房区,它们是我一直居住的伦敦城市肌理的组成部分。我对这些建筑的不同风格感兴趣,无论是低层还是高层,无论是在设计、结构和雕塑品质方面,还是它们在英国社会中所代表的意义。

 

I enjoy the challenge of using various engraving tools to directly create the fine marks and textures that combine to create an image. The play between positive and negative elements when working on an image in reverse allows something unexpected to take place between what has been engraved into the block and the resulting impression - a process I find fascinating.

我喜欢使用各种工具直接在木块上雕刻出细微的痕迹和纹理,以此创作出图像。这种创作方式充满挑战,因为它充满了凸出及凹入的元素的互动,而且必须反向创作图像,所以,雕刻在木块上的刻痕和最终印痕可能会有一些意想不到的元素,这个过程充满趣味。
