Found object assemblages

Work produced in response to walks around construction sites and places marked for demolition in areas adjacent to my studio in Doha, Qatar. During the walks I collect discarded materials, such as polystyrene packaging, ‘Geofoam’ offcuts, coloured insulation foam and corrugated metal sheeting. Back in the studio these objects are combined, dissected, cast, drawn and photographed, with an interest in how they allude to architectural spaces, or become transformed into something new through these processes, standing as models or maquettes for larger works.
