Wings | 1999
Visualising an idea in a flow of lines around the body.
The works were inspired by reflections about our personal baggage, the sum of memories and experience that enables us to navigate in the world, but which can take on very different forms, from restricting systems to light wings.
The wire relates to the lines, points and proportions of the body and forms space and rhythm. From certain angles, references to wings become apparent. When the figures are removed from the body and come to rest on a surface they are transformed to sculptural experiences where lines and space address the underlying surface and the surrounding space.
