Background, history, commissioner of the work

Part of a series of studio-based works made between 2010-2014 that explored the notion that 'nothing is destroyed only transformed'. Matter can only be changed.

Thematic/contextual information

What was, is no more!, started life as a wooden coffee table. Through a process of deconstruction and then reconstruction the mass and matter of the table was transformed into an elevated architectural motif.
