Elements IX – Pollock

Abstract Sculpture
Steel Wall sculpture that represents the element of Earth, as it’s form is effected by other elements. Effortlessly dislodged and taken by the power of Water, or poured over the landscape by the heat of Fire. 

All my sculptures are hand made, each Elements sculpture has been made to be unique. They differ is shape and sometimes in the finish of the steel.
The sculpture has two fixing points so it can be hung horizontally, vertically, or at any angle.

I love the finish of this sculpture, which has a contemporary edge reminiscent of Jackson Pollock`s drip paintings. The result stems from experimenting with colour whilst trying to illustrate the granular structure of earth

Working predominantly in metals, I create an eclectic range of sculpture and contemporary furniture. Highly aesthetic in nature, you will find much of my work curvaceous and tactile, but with a coarseness that is lent from working with bare steel. My style ranges from figurative to abstract and is always in context with its environment. In 2002 I graduated from Cambewell College of Arts in Metalwork & Silversmithing, and had experience assisting in the production and installation of major artworks across the country since 2001. Since 2003 I have been working on my own commissions and large-scale pieces, which have included artworks made from steel, stainless steel, resin and wood.   My current collection ‘Elements’ focuses on Earth, Air, Water and Fire, and describes the reaction of when those elements meet. Developing the collection I concentrated on the proccess of using repetitive form of material - curved steel flatbar, to generate concepts and capture the movement of elemental reactions. The forms are designed to work as sculptures for the home, office and garden, as well as to larger scale installations for private or public spaces.   My inspiration mostly comes from the materials I use, through experimentation and development of shape. I often work in linear forms, which are dictated by the capability of the tools I use, and what I can achieve with them. The form is of primary importance, but I also experiment with surface texture and finish - I sometimes spend weeks weathering steel with salts and water until I achieve the layers of oxidization I am looking for.
