Art Description

Sculpture: Acrylic, Oil, Charcoal, Ink, Bronze on Bronze, Canvas, Paper, Other, Aluminium.

This Bronze Sculpture arrived unexpectedly. Thinking about the state that the world is in, about how many people must be in despair, broken hearted. Originally constructed in clay as a whole heart shape I then decided to slice through the middle in a way that left an uneven surface;
when laid on its decorative side representing mans desecration of the landscape and striations of the earth; the inner uneven surface represents the earths tectonic plates moving and creating natural disasters such as tsunamis,
Placing the two parts in this divided format exposes the core of the earth and the surface at the same time.
The work was then fired as a ceramic which in turn I decided to cast in a Ltd Edition of 5 Cast Bronze sculptures which was subsequently patinated.
I would hope that the work will challenge formal perceptions of sculpture. Despite the work looking at the negative I strongly feel that the positive side of human nature will prevail, The dualities of life continue to test us all.
