The Conquest of Materials

"'The Conquest of Materials' is a study of the sculptural significance of still life photography, a presentation of photographic sculptures created with manufactured or altered materials. There are strong links to modernism and constructivism in their aesthetic whilst the metaphorical space that they represent speaks of the development of his practice and the experimentation and the failure that underpins it." Gabrielle Brooks. Genesis Imaging.

"With great skill and panache, the artist examines the relationship between photography and objects, specifically through photographically rendered sculpture created with manufactured and altered materials. This territory has most recently been explored by contemporary artists such as Darren Harvey-Regan and Becky Beasley, but reflects a practice which goes back to Russian Constructivist experiments of the early Twentieth Century.
