Derived from the fictional premise of a man’s desire to escape from land to sea, the installation ‘Landlocked?’ pivots around an intentionally ‘close-to-completion’ boat, cradled beneath a roof frame hung from the ceiling.  This quarter-scale vessel, crafted from re-purposed materials and hardware, anchors to a small pile of earth nestled upon the gallery floor. Paralleling these sculptural components six collage-like drawings derived from ‘re-purposed imagery’ reference the overlap between daily life and one man’s obsession with building an escape vessel.  These images connote plans or blueprints from life and construction.
