I fabricated this piece from 3mm bronze gilding sheet and Kilkenny limes stone for the plinth. The ‘plates’ are carefully welded and the patination is a mottled blue.
I chose bronze as I like working with metal and I am taken by its properties. Its a material that is hard and cold, yet it can be both sensual and alluring.
Using simple forms from the natural world to create a romantic and sensual art work, this piece was based on botanical and scientific history.
Through this piece I try to evoke the anticipation of movement, like a bud opening and engagement with colour and form. With contours and the notion of gravity are at play here.
