Wall Works are fabricated wall-mounted sculptures/reliefs constructed primarily of metal, glass, mirror, canvas, photographs, text panels, lights, cameras and many other found and made objects.
The first of these works are related to and influenced by the construction sculpture Shrine. These wall-mounted works of the later 1980s and early 1990s used the conventions of painting to explore ideas of exclusion, protection and surveillance.
Far from being conventional windows on the world that we expect paintings to be, these works of this period presented the viewer with blank, impenetrable faces. Metal plates, security grilles, wired and frosted glass, and ventilation ducts were all used in the creation of series of corporate and institutional facades that appeared to turn their backs on gallery visitors, keeping them at bay and refusing them entry to the corridors and seats of power that seemed to lie beyond.
