Forms | non-figurative works (selection)
Four sculptures, three new and one very old, combine industrially produced elements – steel, rubber, acetate – and more unpredictable materials – wax, plaster, expanding foam and soot. The Minimalist aesthetic presents a pared down statement that change is possible within a given structure or system.
A playful, garden-like collection of works produced since 2014. The works are sometimes this, sometimes that. The idea takes form; that it takes the form it needs is the goal.
“Strange organic structures colonise the exhibition space as solitary plastic objects and remain silent. Most of them shine quietly in their discreetly sleepy colours, growing out of the ground as if conjured up by magic. One recalls excursions to natural history museums, archaeological and paleontological collections, hunting rooms and salons, chambers of curiosities of eccentric amateurs.”
