These miniature vignettes, in weathered wooden boxes, set human figures in ironic, heroic and, sometimes, comic poses. The mixed media backdrops juxtapose found objects, dustbin gleanings, remnants of wood, paper and metal to explore metaphors of law, power, and place.

The re-imagined worlds inside these constructions, shaped and repurposed from our throw-away world, allow multiple verdicts. Law and justice-themed art for home and office.
