Installations

After a long hiatus, I’ve once again succumbed to my fascination with installation pieces, and am enjoying the process immensely. It feels like coming home.

My past sculptural works usually included felted wool, or felted wool embedded with other materials. Sometimes these materials were natural fibres: silk, flax, linen. Sometimes I embedded wires, reflective metals or other man-made materials.

Now I’m playing with acrylic paint on acetate film with a sprinkling of metallic elements and an increased sense of, and curiousity about, movement in space. Translucency is another thread that keeps drawing me down new pathways. Natural fibres and objects are tied into my evolving expression. Completely separate and yet irrevocably connected (life’s like that) are my small resin Art Gems that capture the stillness and resonance of natural objects.

All of these installations explore my sense of connection/disconnection between the individual and society, human-made/natural things … and how we all feel and respond to our beliefs within the dynamics of societal pressure.

I revel in the contrasts and am completely curious about where this intrigue will lead.
