A Touch of Clamp

A Touch of Clamp is inspired by my collection of old, largely redundant, mainly wooden, clamps of different forms and functions. Their combination with other objects offers a reinterpretation or repurposing. Sometimes this involves a statement about the relationship e.g. between technology and representations of nature (eg. Egg 2017, and TB continued? 2017 - which is about badger culling). Sometimes thing+clamp symbolises an idea (e.g. The Modern University 2018 - crushing Friere's Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Eaupressor 2018 - a comment on the plastic water bottle, and Joe Hill Framed 2018 - he was!). Other times, it is simply a pun (e.g. Writer's Block 2017, Squash 2017, Tie Press 2017, Turn of the Shrew 2017).
