Art Description

Sculpture: Steel, Metal on Stainless Steel, Steel.

The Tulip sculpture is one that I have been working on during the winter. A little more abstract than some of my other work but still with the strong, graphical, curvaceous lines that I love so much, a design that’s been hidden away in my sketch book for sometime. The piece also differs from much of my other work having a greater depth making it a little more three dimensional, especially when edged with a different, contrasting material to the faces.

Over the winter months i’ve worked on refining the designs, turning sketches into reality and the first two pieces have been constructed to a height of 2.1 meters using a mix of corten steel for the two faces with a contrasting mirror polished stainless steel outer edge and a brushed stainless steel inner edge, giving an added sense of drama and depth.
