New work, 'Practice Table' (2016), included in the group exhibition Good Things Come... showcasing work by a variety of artists exploring objects and time through sculpture. Blink and you’ll miss it. The words conjure up a kind of panic of not wanting to lose sight of the protagonist ‘thing’ by keeping it locked into view. This 'thing' could be small, it might even be tiny (and therefore easy to miss) yet once found, the inevitability of time means that sooner or later you’ll have to give in and blink. good things come... proposes a scenario that contradicts this quandary by suggesting a world where the size of an object and our attention upon it (as artists and spectators) is intrinsically linked to time. Pursuing a dual concept governed by the multiple readings of this well-known phrase, good things come... presents small-scale selections and scaled-up collections. Complex objects of varying ages fuse history with form, implying that the more time we have to spend with a thing (and therefore the longer we wait) the greater the reward (perhaps even in the smallest of ways).
'Practice Table' in Good Things Come... (Group exhibition) PCA The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art, 25 April to Saturday 4 June 2016. Lecture given on 'Practice Table' on 25th May 2016.
