So I hied myself over to his gallery web site and found some new, typically neat and sinister pieces. I especially like the one I show here, Listening In. Brotherton lists its materials as "Welded steel, cast pewter, payphone dial, parts from a beer tap, concrete", which I think may sum up a large part of my own life, as well as reminding me quite a bit of my telephone.
There’s a similar piece called The Calculator that’s also really striking. The new pieces are often smaller, and somehow more intimate, than the large pieces I’ve featured here before. As always, incredibly neat work can be found in his gallery.
