Sculpture: Metal, Steel on Stainless Steel, Steel.
Crescent is a large freestanding, smooth, curvaceous, organic sculpture hand made in polished stainless steel and force rusted mild steel.
Design, construction, polishing and rusting of the steel is all carried out by me.
By adopting a flexible approach while still embracing the concept the piece is allowed to evolve and grow during construction.
The rusted portions are the backbone of the piece making it steadfast and strong, creating shape, form and texture while the polished and distorted stainless provides the theatre and fantasy.
Stainless steel absorbs colour and shapes from its surroundings making its environment an important and intrical part of the sculpture. The distorted portions create the effect of scenes within scenes, small twisted and contorted glimpses.
The viewer is encouraged to look into this piece to see and consider the reflections and the distorted environment around it, to use their imagination to create their own fantasy.
