Chandeliers

A collection of twenty light-works  produced in the early 1980s using mixed media: found objects and junk.

Exhibition at the Slaughterhouse Gallery in Spitalfields, EC1, London. 1986

Bones and Pearl chandelier was the first one made 1985  when  I acquired several bags of  bones from the set of Indianna Jones and The Temple of Doom which was shooting on the nextdoor stage at Pinewood Studios.  Skulls I have used and collected for many years.  There is a bones chandelier in Saint Pietro in Rome.

For other chandeliers I have used colindars, graters, bike wheels, specs, washing machine drum, cutlery, crockery, shoes, a ship, a globe, a weather vane, biros and pencils,  clothes pegs, Piano Keys and Electric Guitar  ( commissioned for the Rock Garden Covent Garden ) - it flashed.

Nice centre page spread in the Sunday Times colour supplement, 1986, Time Out,  Elle Decoration and Vogue.
