I select functional objects from the familiar realm of the domestic Modern Art and the industrial to make abstract compositions about light, colour, texture and shape. In these works, made as photographs, video film, or installation, the objects lose their identity and function, becoming almost unrecognisable as an emphasis on form and colour takes priority. My approach to making the work is akin to that of painting; every element is carefully controlled, considered, reassessed and changed until the final composition is achieved. Minute changes in lighting or angle make vast differences to the tone, hue or density of colour. My response to each specific site produces work unique to its environment.
