  Misery Farm: Arrangement Four , 2012 Concrete, Hepworth brown concrete colouring, Carnauba wax, lanolin, carbon black 650 x 250 x 2000 mm  Details of individual works within arrangement:   This is a love story, and we are the lovers , 2015 Bronze, two parts 150 x 150 x 200 mm (bronze coconut)   I found the child not far from the house lying face down by the edge of the frozen stream , 2015 Stoneware, manganese dioxide 30 x 40 x 50mm (small oyster shell)
       
     
  A vivid emerald sheet has stretched itself across the rectangle of water that covers the polished concrete of the gallery floor. The algae flourish in the still pool, warmed gently from below. Black charred timbers float completely still upon the surface, now islands of microscopic life. The light shines jade as it passes through the plant covered window panes. Huge ferns grow down from the suspended ceiling, finding footing in the lighting tracks, dropping their spores upon the lake below. The gallery is transformed into something far more beautiful and complex than ever could have been envisaged for it.  Extracted urobilin pigment, drip heads, piping, rain water Installation dimensions variable   (Drip work)
