"Return to basics and make structures for their own sake, to re-assess the formal properties of sculpture."
"During 2020 - 22 I felt the need to build works in a purely intuitive manner. The works produced seemed to me to be reflective of the situation that we as a culture are experiencing during this period. There seems to be an undercurrent of instability, uncertainty and vulnerability.
There is a predominance of verticality that permeates these works, in part it is a reflection of my working space but there are unconscious factors that I may come to interpret in time. But I am increasingly aware that in times of a perceived uncertainty, threat or danger, the impulse is to build a physical or virtual defensive structure or refuge." - Peter Burke.
