Chandeliers

A collection of light-works  produced in the early 1980s using found objects and junk, exhibited at the Slaughterhouse Gallery Spitalfields, EC1, London. 1986

Bones and Pearl chandelier was  made 1985  when  I acquired several bags of real human  bones from the set of Indianna Jones and The Temple of Doom shooting on the next door stage at Pinewood Studios.  Skulls I have used and collected for many years.  I had seen a  chandelier of  bones in the Saint Pietro crypt  in Rome.

In chandelier building, I used - colanders, 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 a flickering electric guitar  ( commissioned by the Rock Garden Covent Garden )

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