The sculptures and tri-dimensional
projects in terracotta, wax, plaster, wire and other media
are either heads or female forms, fragments or whole, single or
The groups are made up of isolated elements that can physically
interchange with other parts, thereby constantly forming new dialogues
of tension, space and form. The female figures are intimate, self-sufficient forms,
absorbed in their own thoughts or with their gaze fixed on some
far off point.
My three-dimensional work has moved from a focus on solid multiples to the realisation of more ephemeral pieces where the process of making is brought to the fore and evidenced as a single, organic whole. My current work employs wire mesh as an alternative to more traditional sculptural materials. Its inherent plastic qualities and manipulative possibilities juxtapose with its weightlessness and transparency while at the same time it narrates, maps and chronicles the making process. The exploration of visual elements of light, colour, line, space and texture has seen greater cross-fertilization between my painting and sculpture and has opened up new possibilities in my work.
