These welded sculptures utilise only recycled materials - taking scrap metal and objects which would otherwise be thrown away, and transforming them; what better way to use something useless, than to use it to create something else "quite useless"?

 

The three figures after the description and year of creation of each piece are measurements in cm, and listed as height, width, depth.

RooH, who owned 'Eye', explained why he liked this piece of artwork so much:
"First off: there's an obvious parallel with a certain famous album cover, but it's an eye not a prism. But then whilst a prism may split white light into its constituent colours, it takes human intellect (often symbolised by an eye) to name them. Eye = intellect - insight, vision, imagination. Also 7 colours, really? Newton was a bit nuts about numbers and rather liked the number 7 so there had to be 7 colours in the spectrum (I mean indigo / violet = light purple / dark purple) so there's a link to the artist. And 7 lashes! Then I got to thinking about the left-to-right bias in our society. It's obviously white light being split into colours by an eye. Why is it not colours being combined by human perception into the white light of truth? Because we read left-to-right. Ditto comics, storyboards, flow-diagrams, instructions. But this is not universal, other cultures would see the colours being combined. This made me feel dismay for the human race, if people of different cultures cannot look at a piece of recycled scrap metal and agree what it means then there really is no hope for us as a species. But then, if we can produce a simple artefact which evokes such deep questions, is that not proof of our fitness to survive?"

RooH died in 2010, and is fondly remembered.
