The works instigate relationships with my heroes. The forms are ambiguous and odd, hailing from the idea of objects with idiosyncratic, funky appeal as exemplified by the sculpture of Franz West and Sharon Fitness’ idea that fun work attracts interaction.
A thank you note implies a relationship. In my circumstance the relationship up to this point has often been one sided (jewellery hero to viewer). This project attempts to scramble the current paradigm where one person makes and the other observes. In this case, both parties function as giver and receiver and as maker and viewer. It is an experiment in interchange and initiating relationships.
