In 2001, like all the artists at Acme Studios in Carpenter’s Road, East London, I was faced with the prospect of having to move out. The building was due to be handed back to the landlord. In a few years it would be demolished to make way for the new Olympic Village. I had been there since 1987 and had accrued a large number of objects and surplus materials. I now had to decide whether to throw these things away or to make something new with them. Choosing the latter I began making them into box constructions and later boats.
Some of these works and others in the series are for sale. Please contact me for details.
