Classics is based on the Victorian classical cast collection, belonging to Edinburgh College of Art. The collection consists of 21 full figure sculptures, including casts of Venus de Milo, La Pieta and figures from the Parthenon, which I re-created using 3D computer generated characters. From these characters a series of three interconnected works were developed: a frieze of 21 digital prints; 36 screen-prints; and six bone china sculptures.

The work has been included in the following exhibitions: The Globe Gallery, North Shields, England 'synthetic' 02 (solo show), The Proposition Gallery, Belfast, Northern Ireland 'synthetic' 01 (solo show), University of Kansas, Kansas, USA, 'Return' (group show).
