The free standing figurative sculptures generated a narrative with the identity and recognition of the objects explicit in the activity of the figures. The figures gave the work a grounding and scale, a touchstone. The rust represented a patina of history and emphasized the obsolete, blending with the dynamic, though sometimes perilous, activity of the figures. Some of these pieces were done in a collaborative show with Janice Woode. The division of labour was done between my ideas and her figures. The show was in 2008.

And each wall mounted sculpture represented a conceptual idea that also required a different engineering technique to place on the wall. I was interested in building three-dimensional concepts hung from a two- dimensional plane.
