WORK PROPOSAL: 1988 My preferred program would include an extension to my current work on deconstruction. This would involve reasonably large scale figurative modelling and use of positive and negative casts and moulds. The completed work would be presented in the form of installations and would require the use of a wide range of materials. My work prior to and including the first three years of undergraduate studies has primarily involved three dimensional functional design. The reason for completing my final year in sculpture was the result of a growing awareness that the limiting factors of design considerations, planning and fine craftsmanship were negating the effects of immediacy and gesture which I desire in my sculptural work. My current concentration on sculpture does not mean a complete rejection of functional design. In view of this I would consider it important to allow for some renegotiation of design ideas within program considerations.
