Looking closely and examining an object’s surfaces and textures is a process of revelation. Sections of the shed show are combination of urban material decay overlayed with organic decay. The images of these portions of the shed evoke pre-historic sensibilities of cave dwelling relics and paintings on animal hides. Other sections of the shed have geometric shapes in which the surface materials are decaying, weathered and worn. These evoke the metaphor of the modern mind with a logical structure that has been scarred by experience over time.
