Shane explores the anticipation of movement acceptance, character and engagement through colour, reflection and stance to evoke an emotional response.
In order to charge his ideas, he enters a transformative process which is playful, melding the language of aesthetics, form and character, enabling him to express his views and fears on how we all relate to ourselves and the world around us.
“On any given day when approaching the making of a sculpture I am in a state of awareness, inquisitiveness and reflection. There is also elation and self-questioning along the way, which when coupled with the mercurial nature of the material at hand and the concentration the technical process demands, results in time slipping by, as my focus sharpens. It is extremely rewarding!”
