Public Artworks & Commissions
Public Artworks and commissions can be a challenge, and also an opportunity to step well outside the parameters of the somewhat precious gallery mode of presentation. If the brief is interesting and there is room to be imaginative I have no problem working to a theme and schedule. For me creativity is in the idea, the brief flash that says ‘yes that could really work’. Getting from there to a visible reality may involve many intuitive decisions, but it requires practised skill, and perseverance. It is Trade, and work.
