‘A visual enquiry into the use of tithes as early form of taxation. Exploration of the symbolic patterns/configurations of ten units and the dynamics of these groupings such as:three x three plus  one.

I  developed an edition of ten multiple laser cut possibly metal profiles …. The structures are ornamented and embellished with more detailed  laser cut imagery ….. Images of pods with peas like counting beads, hands, fingers/digits, tools, growth patterns, roots, seeds and embryos could also be incorporated in the work to suggest fecundity, dexterity’.
