deals with the basic properties of both diamonds and charcoal and
their common element carbon. Whilst charcoal is the product of destruction
and signifies the end of time, diamonds are the product of the refinement
of millennia and represent a sense of timelessness or immortality.
Through the juxtaposition of this anomaly the precious nature of
one is highlighted over the other, even though they are essentially
the same. Visually apparent as opposites, one being transparent
and the other opaque they are in fact at either end of the same
process of evolution, which helps to serve as a metaphor for all
things which at first seem diametrically opposed but which are on
closer inspection linked through their elemental nature.
My present work derived from the detritus of my previous toast
series process and similarly I prefer to choose none gallery situations
to show work whether as a site specific piece or finding the right
environment to show the relevant work.
