From the artist:
I compulsively collect rubbish from my immediate environment, the roadside and pavement. I feel compelled to take pick up discarded materials seen as worthless, that in the process become ritual objects that are significant to me. The habitual collecting, hording and subsequent assemblage of these objects into art, allows me to be free of the constraints of the mainstream conventional thinking and fixed attitudes. I see the work as a direct response to my environment, as a form contemporary archaeology, a result of constant fieldwork in my environment, the collecting and reusing its material remains. This is the place and location of my inspiration as well as the source of my vast amassed hoard of ubiquitous objects. This artwork is a conglomeration of the random objects into a compressed environment that takes the form of this assemblage, an immediate response, their arrangement and placement is achieved using simple fixings to a wire frame.
