Inspired by the millipedes, termites and body adornment of South Africa. Taking a line for a walk.
Created predominantly from recycled older sculptures a handmade work from my Stockwell Studio.
Straightened, flattened, filed, hammered then formed the curved squashed rings starts to grow along its undulating path to an apex describing its internal and external shape. However, its organic structure is slowly revealed through stacked reductive bars sometimes hovering outside its inner universe then spinning into a particle void.
Where does it start this cyclonic conundrum a smooth whirlwind generating its own visual vortex, gradually it lumbers from the base then kicks into an acceleration, colours change slightly but significantly.
Space stops, stutters, hops and starts, patterns emerge rhythms pound an ancient beat in a lyrical dance gathering time as the sculptures narrative invokes a response.
