The works in this collection consciously and unconsciously explore subtle contrasts. Contrasts between daybreak and nightfall, stasis and flow; the works mix rough surfaces with smooth curved lines, explore culture and community in otherwise cold industrial settings and give an atmosphere to lonely domestic scenes. All of the works capture these contrasts and translate them back to the viewer - drawing them in and prompting them to find out more.
