A Construction of driftwood and junk timber. The adjustable “totems” are shipwreck fragments delivered by the Atlantic ocean. The female figure ignores the little phallic piece of driftwood and regards the totems with disdain. The over-arching skull-like piece unifies the work.

This Construction is rich in resonances, but has an appearance of calm simplicity.
Simon Vaughan Winter PortraitVaughan-Winter was born in London in 1953. He studied at Stourbridge College of Art, followed by a year at St.Martin’s School of Art, after which he was appointed a lecturer there. Vaughan Winter was also a visiting lecturer at the Chelsea School of Art, Royal College of Art, and Royal Academy Schools. He became Arts Editor for the London Evening news in 1979, undertaking freelance work alongside.

During the ‘90s VaughanWinter concentrated on his two businesses: the first, manufacturing pewter miniatures, the second, an antique emporium. By the end of the decade he decided to work full-time making art and so began his surreal and extraordinary constructions. The work is exquisitely composed, delicate, often disturbing. It can be by turns quirky, intellectually provocative and nostalgic.
