Original figurative sculpture
The sculpture is of a figure in a first dance position where form has been simplified and the figure appears abstract. The use of negative void suggests a hand is placed on the hip, with the head arching slightly back depicting the upper body to flow into the spine and flow through to feet hidden within a flowing dress.
Like many of us, I pick up interesting stones, shells and sticks when going for walks in the countryside. With these back in my studio, I lay out the objects on my work surfaces and then made figurative sketches using their shapes and textures to inspire the creation of my artwork. Combined with clay to complete the figurative form, and when dry, shape with various files to create further form, as well as adding texture where acrylic paint and wax is applied to complete.
The size of this sculpture makes an ideal focal point for tables, shelves and window sills.
I always use sketches and drawings to develop my ideas... to work out how to transform the shapes of objects that inspire me into the strange and beautiful shapes for my sculptures. Sketching out my ideas and how I can make the sculptures work, before actually creating them, allow me to discover many variations that can become influential to future creations.
