Utilising ideas and themes developed through his recent practice, such as signage, props, scale and modelmaking, Stuart presented a new sculptural installation featuring frameworks, structures and illuminated elements that explore our experience of the everyday and how the world is presented to us.
The work explores familiar shapes, colour and materials from our daily encounters with media, signs and surroundings, as well as inspirations from Plymouth itself.
