Making Guns; The Plastic Baroque

The output of my plastic extruding gun has a certain character which is quite unlike the typical plastic object, as I have worked with the material more I have begun to ally it with ideas of the Baroque, the seventeenth century art movement that revels in sensualism, the expression of fluidity and movement and a worldly delight in transcendant issues. This collection riffs on these ideas to create an interpretation of a baroque 'suite' of furniture.
