GUITAR

 

 

 

 

Treated Plaster. 30th September, 2003

Guitar is done in the Minimalist Style.
I also love Minimalism. Brancusi’s work was a simplification of the things around him,

with the strength of what was really mattering in its visual communication.

Here’s a wonderful quote by Brancusi, the Minimalist Sculptor:  On form and essence
Quote:“What is real is not the external form, but the essence of things”. Unquote.

 

 

 

WORKING WITH VENEER TAPE: RUNNER

 

 

 

Mixed Media.  14th April, 2003

Making comparisons with the Drawn Line, then realising these approaches

into 3D sculptures using veneer tape, wood, and metal binding.

Practical approaches for this extending weave, can be used for blinds, and wall hanging sculptures.

 

 

WORKING WITH VENEER TAPE: CUBE

 

 

 

 

 

Veneer Tape. 14th April, 2003

Along with the Fan, and the Runner being made with veneer tape, this cube was

made without any kind of joining or fastening system, or glues.

This is purely a fully closed in cube where there is no lid, nor opening. The ends were tucked in.

The concept is how to use the Drawn Line into a 3D object/ sculpture.

Practical use could be as a seat if inside is stuffed before closure. Otherwise, object d’art.

 

 

WORKING WITH VENEER TAPE: FAN

 

 

 

 

Veneer Tape. 14th April, 2003

I made several works using veneer tape. This was about working the Drawn Line

into a 3D object.

The practical use for this fan was made to be used as a housed

sculpture underneath a glass table top for a coffee table.

 

THE WORKINGS OF TIME

 

 

 

 

 

 

Treated and painted plaster with embellishments. 2003. W.S.U

This work is about the mechanics of life and how we must go through these journeys, to learn and navigate it.

There is a push light in the middle of the light , and the two columns, one being black, and the other being white,

is representative of the balance of understanding needed to reach through and beyond the columns.

A very symbolic work about my son’s life and what is before, during, and after.

 

 

 

 

 

SNAKE PRINT

 

 

 

 

Ink on acid-free thick paper. @2003.

To touch this print is very textured embossing.

The visual is of a dark maroon colour on a light cream coloured paper.

 

 

 

LEY LINES SCULPTURE

 

 

 

Treated Plaster. 2003

This work is about Ley lines and how, the most convenient route is taken with land formations.

These sculptured pieces, when matched together correctly, like jigsaw puzzle  pieces, it forms a complete circle,

which is not only a fully formed formation, but also one that is easily transformed- just like our land masses formulate over time.

 The easiest path is the one of least resistance.

 

 

 

IN PRAISE OF FEMININITY

 

 

 

 

 

Treated Plaster, metal. 2003

I was doing a series on Femininity at uni, and this sculpture is about the reverence of

the female force. The cup lip is sculpted in the form of a rose petal, and the cup itself is ornately carved.

The cup stands on  a raised cake, where the two springs represent the ribbons of festivity.

These stand on a fancy, lace patterned ‘tray’,

presenting this work as it should be-

In praise of femininity.

 

 

 

VENUS II

 

 

 

 

Treated Plaster. 2003

Venus II is  in the Minimalist Style.  I was doing a fertility series at uni,

where this particular study came into play for a sculpture. I was reading up on the Venus of Willendorf,

where I was inspired to make the Modern Venus, of which is titled ‘Venus II’.

She is uncomplicated, compact, smooth facade, and sturdy.
