Between Visits to India: 1989-1997

“The body is a place: the site of consciousness”                                                   

I first visited India in 1989 to study temple architecture and sculpture, mainly in the south. Along the way I recorded thoughts and observations on a 25 metre “scroll diary”, which came to provide ideas and inspiration for a considerable number of works on return to Scotland. The work explores different ways of signifying the presence of a human body, through reductive forms, the inherent  expressiveness of materials and architectural metaphor.

In 1996 this work was collated in the form of a catalogue and photographic documentation, which was exhibited during my Artist’s residency at the MS University of Baroda in Gujarat. The following year the sculpture itself was formed into an exhibition entitled, “The body as a place: the site of consciousness”, at the Glasgow School of Art.
