Thanks to the patience of my lovely wife I have taken the time to ready my studio for production. The garage is now setup to accomodate work on larger pieces. With the diversity of projects wood, metal and canvas I have reorganised my multiple work spaces to better accomodate for future materials artworks and sculptures.

I had just spent 1 day making a ramp that could support 500kg payload on my flatbed trolley. So with that on my mind I did these paintings.

In my mind I had envisioned the quarry as something pretty low key but on arival that changed, it was like a mining operation, my trolley and my 800kg capable van looked miniscule in comparison to the big trucks and earth moving equipment. We loaded up 900 kg of rock, betwen 80kg and 150kg each, and got back home.
