They flock together – patterns across the wall: a collection of objects cast from the empty spaces left behind in plastic packaging. Sourced from the tool box, the toy box and the domestic environment, the original moulds are the wallpaper of our daily lives – ever present but barely noticed.

Thanks for covering the show at Ararat Gallery. Hip crafter, Tamara Marwood will be sharing the space with her exhibition ‘Handcrafted Landscape’. Both are domestic works, her’s are soft and tawny and mine are lairy and loud so we hope it makes for interesting viewing.
