I came across this Glasgow artist today in Art Review. I dig it.
"...creating gangly sculptures that appear to be made out of studio tools and debris - pencils, discarded pieces of cardboard, rubbers - but are in fact fashioned from the more durable and eminent materials of bronze or plaster...Rather than using tools to make new objects, they are valued as things in themselves...In the staging of the process of making the work, the tools themselves became representational, a reversal he accomplishes in his portraits as well..."

The sculptures remind me a little of Gedi Sibony.

Gedi is good.
