2013, Cortex steel, 2.8 x 3.5 x 3.8m

'The Remnants of Love (after Robert Indiana)' consists of metal offcuts of the negative spaces which surround the individual letters of Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE sculpture. Consisting of large slabs of steel stacked on top of each other, leaning against the wall, it is a memorial of sorts yet it speaks of the incommensurability of memory. Chaotic in its appearance, making concrete the necessary support to articulate the word which would have been previously discarded or unappreciated, left as a residue in a workshop, it possesses an ambiguous materiality between melancholia and affirmation.
